As days grow warmer, people in the Columbia Basin are looking forward to enjoying outdoor spaces—those in nature, and those in our communities. Looking ahead to times when restrictions ease, many communities are wondering how they can make the gathering places within their limits more welcoming and useable, or how they can add new ones altogether.

To realize their ideas, some communities have turned to Columbia Basin Trust’s Community Outdoor Revitalization Grants. Currently, this program is providing over $1.3 million to help 10 communities undertake such projects.

Spring is in the air and you are probably eager to hit the trails! April can be a tricky month for weather in Fernie. The roads are a good option this time of year in Fernie or the South Country area. You can find some great options around Baynes Lake, Jaffray, Newgate and Fort Steele.  

Between March 26 and 29 vandals destroyed and removed newly-installed recreation use signs in the Koocanusa area, causing an estimated $5,000 in property damage. The signs were installed to communicate the new regulations for the Koocanusa Recreation Management Area, which limits motorized recreation to designated roads and trails, and restricts Crown land camping to designated sites.
