Important updates regarding Scowen Park and new trails

The trail at Scowen Park is closed temporarily during the spring wet and muddy season.  Once the trail dries and hardens again in a few weeks, it will be reopened.  As the trail matures over the next few years, this annual closing should become shorter.  Thank you for your consideration of the trail and for your patience.
A group of volunteers have formed the ‘Friends of Scowen Park’ committee who visit the trail often to check on it’s cleanliness and general well-being.  Our sincere thanks to these volunteers for their care in keeping the trail beautiful.
The Massawippi Foundation and Massawippi Conservation Trust are busy making preparations for a grand opening of a new 3 kilometre trail on Massawippi Mountain in the summer of 2017.  Opening ceremonies will take place on August 20th and will include music, a blessing by an Abenaki Elder, a ribbon cutting and a chance to walk the trail and speak with guides about the flora and fauna present.  This will be followed by a wine and cheese reception at the Community Centre in Ste. Catherine de Hatley.  The event is free to all and we welcome everyone of all ages to take a hike with us that day and attend our reception.  More details will follow in the coming months. So, save the date!
