Club Needed for AEP Project... Ghost/Margaret Lake
« on: July 18, 2022, 08:36:51 PM »
Hey Everyone,
Please see below and post up ASAP if you are interested/available in helping out.
AEP is looking to plan for early September; but its up to us to set the exact weekend/dates, so please include dates you are available.

The only requirement for this project is that the club be a supporter of T4T. IF we have decent interest, then I'll reach out to confirm our participation.



Trails 4 Tomorrow has a potential project with Alberta Environment and Parks (AEP) in the Ghost PLUZ this year. They are looking for clubs who support T4T to complete this work to help keep the trails maintained and open. This is a multi-year project so there will be opportunity to do more; but this year they are focusing on drainage on the Margaret Lake trail and the work is currently being planned for early September.

Reasons for us to get involved:
  • No experience is required
  • It will be a lot of fun
  • Our club will receive recognition for completing the project
  • T4T has a volunteer list we can utilize; but would be best to have more of our own people there.
Trail maintenance needs to be completed under the approval of AEP. T4T is working with AEP to ensure that the maintenance meets AEP’s criteria and standards. Unapproved work, while perceived as helpful to maintaining trails may cause conflict with the AEP and inadvertently affect our access. T4T manages this work on 4WD trail users behalf to maintain good relations with regulators to help keep existing trails open and show we are good stewards to assist in opening up new areas.

We are out at Waiparous most weekends camping so should be able to help out with whatever weekend the majority wants.

This project needs a club to spearhead the maintenance. Coordinating and making sure everything is done to AEP specifications. We need to show that we care and prove that we can do simple crap like putting in some water bars and moving some dirt with hand tools. This will lead to bigger and better things. If no other club steps up then this will be moved to next year and so on and so forth.

We need to step up if no one else does.

I’ll be there for this and can spearhead this project for CJA if that works?  I have a few weekends in September that I can be there.
I just can’t resist a good mud hole!  🤦

Looking to do the Stewardship fair in Waiparous on the 24th. Could certainly use your knowledge and experience if you’re up for it? It’s a 10-3pm event. See my other related post…  8)

Well that’s potentially 4 of us… should we pursue the Saturday September 10 and get some additional details?

Okay sounds like we’re on for the 10th… here’s a snippet from Lloyd at T4T:


I believe that we will also have a few people from the RMLCA (Land Cruiser guys) as well. I am waiting on confirmation from them as to how many. I should know a little bit more towards the middle of the month. We will put a plan together in late August in terms of where we will meet. I will put out a list of places we need to do work and we can allocate people as needed. I am checking if we can get some burgers and hot dogs at the end of the job.”

I'm out if you're doing the 10th.   We are out of town from the Sept 2-11 for our annual motorcycle trip.
