ACTIVE TRANSPORTATION BREAKOUT: Building Rail Trails For Community Connection & Health

November 23, 2017
11:35 am  -  11:45 am

The experience of other rail trail organizations across North America has been very helpful in the planning and development of the Okanagan Rail Trail. Communities along the trail are well on their way to raising $7.8 million to fund construction of this 48.5 km trail.

Donors from far and wide contributed nearly $5 million in the first year of fundraising. The North and Central Okanagan Foundations, with business and campaign partners, have helped in so many ways, and their support will ensure that the full amount is raised. Trail ambassadors working with communities have generated many ideas, events, and fundraising initiatives that make this a community-driven campaign.
