On The Right Path: Investing in The Future of Manitoba’s Trails Network


On The Right Path: Investing in The Future of Manitoba’s Trails Network

March 12 2021

Trails are a community asset.

Trails open a path to outdoor recreation and social activities, help improve our health and well-being, provide access to historic sites and places of cultural significance, and can improve the local economy.

They also play an important role in environmental conservation. Trails connect people to natural wonders in Manitoba, instilling appreciation and respect for our lands, water and living things.

In this webinar, CPAWS Manitoba Executive Director Ron Thiessen spoke about the Government of Manitoba’s Trail Strategy survey and the potential risks our trails network and natural spaces are facing.

The event also featured Tim Coffin, Executive Director of Trails Manitoba, who talked about why it’s important for people to use and support the trails network, the improvements currently underway and what they see as the priorities for the future of trails in Manitoba.

Together, we can take action to protect our trails and parks, ensuring we #KeepManitobaWild.
