Ontario Trail Education - take a course improve trails!


MAKE SURE TO CHECK THE EVENT CALENDAR

Trail Education
Our event calendar shows weekly adjustments to our course offerings. This week we have added another date for Volunteer Management with Diana Smyth and adjusted out two courses from this current week.

In addition, we have added the new Trail Design Course detailed below. We have also taken calls from some folks wishing to take the Trails Marketing Course in Kingston October 18, 2012. Those seats were block purchased by RTO 9, what we could do is work with you to get another RTO 1-or 4- or 7? to purchase a block of seats so that folks can attend in those areas. Sorry for any confusion this may cause. Thank you.

Be sure to use our array of press or other flyers to circulate to your local papers or possible attendees. All available for use - call - 877-668-7245 or 519-941-8911, or 1-866-560-7783

A Costly Mistake - Write Your Councillor Now to Save the Jarvis St. Bike Lanes


 separated bike lanes
Time's running out to save the Jarvis St bike lanes. In early September, we were notified by the Province of Ontario that our request for an Environmental Assessment on Jarvis St had been denied. It's now up to City Council to reverse their decision on Jarvis St. With 7 weeks until their scheduled removal, we need you to act now to save the Jarvis St bike lanes. That will only happen if all of us who have a say in what goes on in our city demand it. There are only 2 council sessions left between now and the bike lanes' scheduled date for removal.

Contact your City Councillor now  and tell them to protect the Jarvis Street bike lanes! Need help with wording your letter? Click here for all the reasons to save the Jarvis St. lanes.
