ALRF Trail Bee

Volunteers from the community of Aleza Lake pose on the completed steps to the South Knolls Trailhead.

Last Friday, a  group of volunteers from the community of Aleza Lake  built steps to the entrance of the South Knolls Trail, and  prepared a great lunch for the group  after  our work  was done.   Many thanks to Lloyd, Jerry, Ann and Alva for donating their time, ideas and  building materials to the project!   The  wood  chips, used for surfacing, were  provided  by  a  brushing crew from the PG Youth Custody Services Forestry Program working along the Upper Fraser Road near Giscome.

ALRF  is holding  several  trail work bees  in August and September, every second Friday. If you are interested in  helping out,  please contact us!
