Public Input on Sechelt Land Use Plan

CMBTA was sent an email advising us on a new Land Use planning initiative between shíshálh Nation and the  Province of British Columbia.  They are inviting the public to fill out a survey on what you think is important from a land and resource management perspective.  There are no land use plan details/zones/objectives as of yet. Input is sought on overall priorities for land use, such as the importance of non-motorized access and recreation use.  If you are interested, please click the link below to provide your comments.

Deadline: January  31.

PHO in regards to Trail Days/Events

We fully support the current public health order and hope to be able to host events again soon. At this time Trail Days/Events are on hold until further notice. The health and safety of our community during these times is our number one priority.

Call out for Trail Ambassadors

We're looking for trail advocates for the Roberts Creek trail network that are passionate about providing up-to-date info on trail conditions and would like do light maintenance.

Basic duties include:

  • Inspect a few designated trails bi-weekly
  • Do light pruning, clear trail of debris and pick up litter
  • Summit trail reports and advise Roberts Creek Trail Directors on condition of trails and any maintenance (beyond clearing and debris) that is needed
  • No fixed term, help for as long as you would like!

Please email us if you would like to help!

Trail Reports and

See a fallen tree, drainage issue, bridge repair or any other maintenance out on the trail? Let us know through the TrailForks app. You can enter a trail report for any issues that needs maintenance. With TrailForks you can attach images and the GPS location. This makes it a lot easier to find the location with the issue and to plan accordingly for maintenance to be done.

For those not familiar with TrailForks, it is a trail map application available for phones and computers. The phone application shows detailed maps with your current location which is very useful if you are not familiar with the riding area. To add a trail Report follow the steps in the videos attached:

If you don't use Trailforks please still enter all maintenance hours on our google doc form below and get in touch with us regarding maintenance that needs to be done by email.
