Friends of Lois Creek will be meeting on Tuesday, November 28 at Lindsay Park School at 7 p.m.
One and all are invited to attend to hear an update on the Wildsight-led wetland project (including two brand new “stroller-grade” access trails) a first look at the new trail map, rent and planned upgrades at P Junction, preliminary results of steam treating invasive weeds along the Powerline Trail, and the first steps toward establishing an outdoor education collaboration with Lindsay Park Elementary School.
Attendees will be asked to provide input on names for two new trails built over the summer by Kimberley Trails Society crews. Three kilometers in length and constructed along a gentle grade, the new trails are designed to improve access to the wetland area from the Elko Street Entrance, particularly for Kimberley’s younger population.
Lois Creek Trails is named after the daughter of Harry Gamble, general foreman of Cominco in the early 1900s. Lois died in the 1918 pandemic, but her name lives on in the provincially recognized trail system within Recreation Sites and Trails BC that is now cooperatively managed by the Kimberley Trails Society and the Friends of Lois Creek.
