The Central Okanagan Naturalists’ Club in Kelowna will benefit from $132,173 in funding which will create jobs and revitalize the Okanagan Highlands Trail Upgrades.

As well, the Kelowna Snowmobile Club will receive $110,000 in funding to help create jobs and revitalize the trails for the Okanagan Highlands Snowmobile Trails.

“Our government is pleased to provide $242,173 to the Central Okanagan Naturalist’s Club and the Kelowna Snowmobile Club in support of the development and upgrading of recreational trails across our country,” said Kelowna-Lake Country MP Ron Cannan.

“Through this initiative, our Government and the National Trails Coalition (NTC) are working together to create jobs, stimulate the economy and improve Canada’s stock of trail infrastructure for the present and for our future,” he said in a statement.

The project is being supported through the federal government’s $25 million investment in recreational trails, part of the Canada Economic Action Plan.

The investment will be matched by the trails coalition and their provincial, territorial, municipal or private funding partners.
