Meewasin has been working alongside many organizations, elders and stakeholders on a new project called the Meewasin Indigenous experiences project, which led to a new Meewasin App. This program will enhance the First Nation and Métis history and stories found within the Meewasin Valley. This is the first project of its kind and was created to provide authentic and interactive educational content for local and international tourists wanting to learn more about the area.

Lisa Franks, former Paralympian, and trail enthusiast
Sports and the outdoors have always been a part of Lisa Franks’ life. After a spinal cord injury left her paralyzed at age 14, Lisa turned her sights to wheelchair sports. In wheelchair racing, she won four gold medals and one silver medal at the Sydney 2000 Paralympic Games and two gold medals at the Athens Paralympics in 2004. Looking for a new challenge, she switched her focus to wheelchair basketball. In 2006 she became the first woman from Saskatchewan to be named to the Canadian women’s wheelchair basketball team. That season she won a gold medal at the 2006 World Championship with Team Canada. She also represented Canada in wheelchair basketball at the Beijing 2008 Paralympic Games. After a severe shoulder injury ended her elite sports career, Lisa discovered adaptive mountain biking. In 2020 she formed the Saskatchewan Adaptive Mountain Bike (aMtb) Club with the goal of eliminating the financial barrier of purchasing equipment for new athletes. The club loans out aMtb bikes and takes new riders on introductory trail rides. In 2021, Lisa mapped several parts of the Trans Canada trail for accessibility in partnership with the TCT and AccessNow and she became an advisory member of the Saskatoon Trail Alliance. She hopes to grow the sport of aMtb and see continued improvement of accessibility in the outdoors.
