On Sunday, president of Trans Canada Trails Deborah Apps and president of Trails BC Al Skucas will be in the Slocan Valley to tour the Slocan Valley Rail Trail and meet with the local trail community.

The popular Slocan Valley Rail Trail is slated for inclusion in the Trans Canada Trail network as a prime example of everything a “community greenway” trail can be. The public is invited to join Apps, Skucas and members of the Slocan Valley Heritage Trail Society at 1 p.m. on the trail at Winlaw Station to begin a bicycle tour of the north half of the trail.

At 7 p.m. on Sunday the Slocan Valley Heritage Trail Society is having its annual general meeting at Passmore Hall and Apps will be presenting a slide show on progress to date with the Trans Canada Trail Project. Skucas will also provide regional updates for Trails BC.

Interested members of the public are welcome to attend this rare opportunity to hear and speak with the presidents of these two major recreational trail organizations.
