Fundraising

Trail Improvement

The Friends of Okanagan Rail Trail will work with the trail owner jurisdictions to determine priorities for fundraising for trail improvements. With the basic trail construction already funded, fundraising will focus on trail amenities, and beautification.

A good example of trailside enhancements is the interpretive sites funded by the Edna, Stella, and Harry Weatherill Foundation. Three sites were chosen for enhancement based on a number of factors, in particular their potential to connect trail users with the natural and cultural history of the route.

One site is being developed in each of the City of Kelowna, District of Lake Country, and North Okanagan Regional District.


Watch this website for opportunities to donate towards future trailside enhancements!
