IMBA Canada Trail Care Crew
Do you want to engage your volunteers, learn new techniques to build sustainable, multi-use trails, and have some fun? Then you've come to the right place!
The IMBA Canada Trail Care Crew is a dynamic team of professional trailbuilders, educators, and enablers. Supported by Parks Canada, the Crew travels across the country year-round, getting Canadians of all ages outdoors, and educating them about sustainable trails!
Visits are free and open to all non-motorized trail users. They are hosted by IMBA Canada-affiliated clubs, Parks Canada sites, and other land managers.
Typical visits take place over four days and include a trail project assessment, an IMBA Trail Building School, a social night, and group ride. With more than 30 visits and events each year, we rely on local volunteers to help coordinate many of the details.

Trail Care Crew 2014
Things will be looking a little different on the road in 2014! Due to decreased staff capacity, our team of two is down to one -- Igor Hoogendoorn, past IMBA Canada Regional Coordinator and seasoned trailbuilder/educator will be visiting Parks Canada sites and IMBA Canada clubs this season, delivering the Trail Care Crew program. Igor will be travelling from west to east this year, and visits will be confirmed as capacity allows. Check out the current visit schedule for a list of confirmed visits.
Thanks to all those who applied for a 2014 visit. You will receive contact from IMBA Canada as the schedule develops.
