Greenway Trails Initiative

 

In October, 2019 Sentier NB Trails ceased to exist. This organization was umbrella organization for recreational trails use, maintenance, development, and funding in the province.

With the demise of the NB Trails council imminent, a group of trail stakeholders came together to organize a facilitated discussion on the future of greenways in New Brunswick. The intention of the discussion was not to presuppose the future of greenways, but rather to bring a diverse group of interested stakeholders to begin a discussion about a possible future direction.

The ideas and goals of this Provincial Greenway Trail Coalition have been summarized in a comprehensive report that will form the basis for the discussions amongst the working group members in the coming weeks. To read the report in its entirety, click here.

This research has now been published in the International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health. The paper, entitled “Knowledge and Knowledge Needs about Lyme Disease among Occupational and Recreational Users of the Outdoors”, is available by clicking on the title.
