Community trails get boost 0
The Crowsnest Community Trails received another boost last week with a $1,000 donation from Servus Credit Union.
This is the second donation to the trails project from the organization.
Branch Manager Sue Moser said the donation is for the continuing benefit of the trails whose network links the five communities of the Pass together.
"Servus Credit Union is committed to fostering strong and vibrant community connections," said Moser. "These local trails provide a variety of recreational opportunities for our community such as walking, biking, jogging, snowshoeing and historic tours, as well as bird and wildlife watching."
Jenice Smith, trails coordinator, said current projects include a crossing over Nez Perce Creek, installation of four memorial benches and new pedestrian-light crosswalks on the trail network.
Smith said they will also be ordering a new batch of trail memorial benches for 2013 and if anyone is interested in sponsoring a bench, to contact her. Additional sponsorship is also being sought for future trail development and trail infrastructure installation.
The Crowsnest Community Trail stretches 23 kilometres from Coleman to Hillcrest and includes primary paved sections, secondary gravel sections and natural single-track. Maps can be picked up at the municipal office or at trail kiosks. They can also be printed off the municipal website.
