WHOAS, The Wild Horse of Alberta Society, has signed a Memorandum of Understanding with Environment and Sustainable Resource Development (ESRD). This five year agreement allows WHOAS to work in collaboration with ESRD to humanely manage wild horse populations in the Sundre area. Hopefully it will also take the pressure off wild horses in Kananaskis Country. [click to continue…]
Heavy pulling, along the muddy 3 km route.
Here’s an album that highlights some of the work done by volunteers and with donated funds at West Bragg Creek this summer.
New trails include: Merlin View (all season), Mountain View, West Crystal re-route, Crystal Link #2, #3, #4, East Link, Bunny Loop and Chickadee Loop (XC Ski trails) and Snowy Owl and Snowy Shortcut snowshoe trails.
Trail upgrades were made to East Crystal Line & Sundog (skate ski loop), West Crystal Line, Loggers Loop, Hostel Loop, East Telephone (to km 6), Snowshoe Hare and part of Demi-Tel.
7 new bridges were build (Iron Springs, lower Sundog, three on West Crystal Line, East Telephone and one on Merlin View). Plus 50 culverts were installed… some new and some larger ones to replace those that had blown out.
We’ve also just ordered 100 permanent map signs (at junctions), 55 trail signs and we put up 500 snowshoe trail markers.
