    We continue moving forward for the Nashville trails and the Humber River network.

    Just a couple of updates from this early summer:

    -formal funding has been applied for sections of the trail
    -a substantial part of the multi-use section has been gps-ed with the trca and reviewed/commitment for machine building by staff
    -archaeological and biological review of route commencing
    -trial maintenance youth group program will begin in July using the property for training and providing support to the trail, this will be a long term program
    -sections for this work has been identified
    -will be working on more trail gps-ing this Thursday with the TRCA and other stakeholders
    -integration of these humber trails into the large concept/plan of a headwaters to lake route, this is really important since it will secure a higher degree of funding and will give opportunities for mountain bikers to sit on committee to develop trails on the entire route

    Hey @singlesprocket anywhere we can get some more information on this program? Sounds like a fantastic, forward thinking Stewardship program.

    Sure Fiester, I will get all the info to you. This one program is being run from the Bolton Camp and is just being implemented in the region of York. The other one is being run out of Peel. The groups used to mainly do plantings and garbage pick up. Though important work, it is rather boring. The trail stuff is a new initiative and is a lot more fun in my opinion.

    Thanks @singlesprocket that would be much appreciated.

    I can see the trail building, depending on age etc., being an excellent opportunity for a school trip. Some amazing ‘real world’ curricular links especially for something like phys-ed or outdoor education. If there isn’t already someone actively promoting this to the School boards that might be a good next step.

    And I agree, the ability to walk away at the end of the day and see your work in the form of new trail would be extremely rewarding – the ability to go back and say, ‘I built this for the greater good of the community’ would be priceless.

    The last I read about it was everything has been approved in principal except who is going to pay for it.

    “Vaughan councillors also pledged their support for the plan at a committee of the whole meeting Wednesday. But the majority of council members made it clear to TRCA representatives, given the city’s fiscal challenges, they’re not willing to provide any funding, at this time.”
