The WRWEO AGM will be held on Thursday, September 1 at the Estabrooks Community Hall (4408 St Margarets Bay Rd). The meeting starts at 6:00 pm and will conclude by 7:30 pm. Masks will be mandatory and a virtual option for attendance will be sought, more details to follow.
We will elect this year’s Board of Directors, present the Chair’s report, and review WRWEO’s financial statements. Mike Lancaster will provide highlights of the Bluff Trail Stewardship Program, which has now been going for five years.
This past year we have seen increased activity and harmful human impacts on The Bluff Trail. In particular, there has been a great increase in the number of illegal fire pits. We need your help more than ever to protect and maintain The Bluff Trail and Five Bridge Lakes Wilderness Area.
Our 2022 Summer Stewardship Technicians: Reilly, Chris, Ezra, and Lucas, are on the Trail sharing knowledge, spreading awareness, and remediating damages, like illegally-created fire pits. Much of their work is focused on the impacts that our cumulative use brings to the trail and they are sharing some strategies on how we can change our behaviours to avoid them. They’ll also provide trail users with ways that they can help the efforts to steward the Trail, as doing so is a huge job that needs all the help it can get.
Membership costs $5, pay online – membership must be up-to-date in order to participate.
If you’re interested in helping direct the work on the trail or want to get involved with research on the trail or greater wilderness area please contact us at email@example.com.
