The STA will be undertaking a research project to determine what the current state of trails are in the province, identify existing gaps, and develop potential solutions. We will develop an on-line survey that we will distribute to all members, municipalities, resort communities and provincial sport and recreation association.
More in-depth research will be required with key stakeholders such as the Saskatchewan Cycling Association, Saskatchewan Horse Federation, Saskatchewan All-Terrain Vehicle Association, Saskatchewan Snowmobile Association, and Cross Country Saskatchewan. A final aspect of this research is to review how our provincial trail association compares with other provincial associations.
We have currently secured funding from the Community Research Unit at the University of Regina (the same group that funded our Rails to Trails Manual).
Stay tuned for more information.
