Many great trails have volunteer ‘Friends’ organizations to support the trail and trail user experience.
Several volunteers from the trail-building fundraising society (Okanagan Rail trail Initiative) have established a foundational ‘Friends of Okanagan Rail Trail’ Society, or FORT for short. FORT is a non-profit society, volunteer driven, and the official non-government partner to the rail trail owner jurisdictions.
FORT core values and program areas are illustrated below.
Programs are in development, and will be coordinated with Owner jurisdictions.
