Trail Maintenance Workshops a Success
We wrapped up our successful Trail Maintenance workshops in 2023, geared for community trail group volunteers and others in areas hardest hit by Hurricane Fiona. We held four workshops in Pugwash, Antigonish, Sydney and Musquodoboit Harbour for a total of 49 participants. The workshops were supported by NSLC For the Good of Our Community Fund as well as the NS Department of Communities, Culture, Tourism and Heritage.

We are in the process of planning for more training opportunities in 2024. Stay tuned for updates!

Chainsaw Safety Training
During our Trail Maintenance workshops in 2023, we heard of the need for more training in chainsaw operation and safety. There are chainsaw safety courses available from Safety Services Nova Scotia and Forestry Safety Society of Nova Scotia. There is also funding available to support training costs through the NS Occupational Health and Safety Education Trust Fund. Apply for funding support to train your volunteers or staff members when and where you need it.
