Twin Rivers students Ashton

Three grade 7 classes from Twin Rivers Elementary helped to complete a trail connecting the Kinnaird Bridge to the Doukhobor Discovery Centre, Selkirk College and West Kootenay Regional Airport. The trail will also be part of the soon-to-be-completed Three Bridges Trail that will be a 6 to 8 hour walk linking Castlegar, Robson, Brilliant and Ootischenia, travelling through Selkirk College’s interpretive trail, Waldie Island, Millenium Park, and cultural sites like the Doukhobor Discovery Centre, Mir Centre for Peace, Kootenay Gallery, and Zuckerberg Island.

Students completed tread work similar to the work area students did in Pass Creek Park several weeks ago. They also participated in activities at the Doukhobor Discovery Centre and Kootenay Gallery and learned about human-wildlife interactions from WildSafe representative Jenny Wallace.
