IMBA Trail Workshop in Fort Smith, NT
The International Mountain Bicycling Association (Canada) is coming to the Northwest Territories! Chad and Deanne Lazaruk of the IMBA Canada Trail Care Crew will be in Fort Smith for a free IMBA Trail Building School in Wood Buffalo National Park.
Come out to meet the Crew, and network with other trail users in your area! You'll learn the art and science of sustainable trail building, and get hands-on instruction in the field! Get more info on the IMBA Canada Trail Care Crew here.
Not a mountain biker? The principles of building sustainable trails apply to all users (hikers, trail runners, equestrians, and cycling), and our workshops are open to the public -- all users and land managers are invited.
