Do not go on closed trails. Active tree falling and heavy machinery use taking place creates a hazard for public use. Follow all signs and instructions from staff on site.
The work in 2022 is on two parcels of municipal land and the RMOW will continue with the current contractor who completed the Taluswood, High School and other projects. The RMOW is in contact with the Cheakamus Community Forest as the adjacent tenure holder, and will coordinate further with WORCA regarding the trails in the area.
The full area that could be treated over time and as funding allows is shown below.
