Kamloops will see a new program rolled out this spring to keep city trails litter free.
City of Kamloops Natural Resources Crew Leader, Kirsten Wourms, says this is the first year for the Adopt a Trail program, which works similarly to the Adopt a Road program.
She says, the Adopt a Trail program will allow people to help keep the trails they already walk clean and free of invasive weeds.
“Kenna Cartwright Park, on one of our main trails, and so that’s our first trail that’s been chosen, I know we’ve heard some interest from Barnhartvale Nature Park as well. So yeah, we’re definitely encouraging people to get out there and get their names on their trails.”
Wourms says the trails up for adoption are in Aberdeen, Peterson Creek, Valleyview, Dallas and Barnhartvale.
She adds, the best way to get involved is to look online at what trails are available on the city website, and fill out the application form.
