Volunteer Trail Ambassadors have been the Okanagan Rail Trail cheerleaders since the beginning of the trail building fundraising campaign. Trail Ambassadors are the friendly faces you may meet along the trail who are ready to share local insights and hear from you about your experiences on the trail. Watch for the yellow vests and share your questions and comments. 

The role of the Trail Ambassadors is to:

  • Support the trail user experience;
  • Inspire users by sharing information on the trail environment and history;
  • Solicit feedback and information from users;
  • Be a visible presence on the trail to help ensure user safety;
  • Report to managing authorities on conditions and issues; and
  • Encourage compliance with trail etiquette and rules.

A pilot program for Trail Ambassadors in 2019 demonstrated the value of having volunteer “eyes and ears” for the trail. 

If you are a local resident that is passionate about sharing your knowledge of the community and appreciation for the Okanagan Rail Trail, we would love to have you join the Trail Ambassador volunteer team for the 2020 season. Click here to inquire about joining.
