Nakusp trails society looking at new opportunities to grow

The local trails society is looking at opportunities to promote trails in this area.

The first one is a Farmer’s Market. The Nakusp and Area Community Trails Society is looking for friendly trail enthusiasts to staff a booth at the Farmer’s Markets this summer.

“You don’t have to sell anything except enthusiasm about our local trails,” the society said in a press release. “The Board will put together a booth complete with a map of the trails in our area, photos and maybe a handout or two, and volunteers would just need to visit, be friendly and promote the trails in our area.”

If you feel that you could contribute a few hours on a Saturday or two this spring or summer, please contact

The second initiative is looking after the Sand Dig event at the annual Canada Day celebrations.

The July 1 Planning Committee has asked the trails society if we would look after this popular activity for kids under the age of seven.

The Sand Dig consists of a pile of sand in which ‘prizes’ are hidden and kids get a chance to “dig” out a prize.

“We’ve got help lined up who would look after getting the sand and the prizes, but we are looking for a few volunteers to oversee the event on July 1st - it will run only from 12 - 2, so 4 volunteers would be all that is needed,” said the press release.

If you can help with this event, please contact

Your participation will determine whether we can take advantage of these opportunities - please consider giving a few hours this summer to the Trails Society and you will get to meet a lot of very nice people who are interested in our area and our Trails.
