Trail Building & Maintenance
The PVTA receives funding from the Pemberton Valley Utilities & Services committee, memberships, donations, and grants. The money is spent primarily on trail maintenance and building projects throughout the spring and fall seasons. Professional trail builders are employed to carry out the work and trail days are held throughout the year for the community to help with raking, digging, and brush clearing. The paid trail builders are only able to keep up with a small amount of the trail maintenance required in the Valley, and the bulk of the work is still done by many dedicated volunteers in the area.
A Nature Nerd's Perspective to Sustainable Trail Building and Maintenance
In partnership between the Pemberton and District Public Library and Veronica Woodruff of the Stewardship Pemberton Society and the Pemberton Wildlife Association the below video was created in consultation with Pemberton Off-road Cycling Association (PORCA) and Pemberton Valley Trails Association (PVTA) and celebrates the newly formed Pemberton Recreational Trails Plan Monitoring Committee. A collab committee launched to help support amazingly sustainable trail networks in Pemberton.
This talk is about the evolution of trail use and management, what has been done really well and how we can collaboratively improve in the future for the protection of species and habitat while maintaining great recreational trail networks.
