2013 was an incredible year for the NSMBA and the North Shore trails.  In total, the NSMBA now maintains 62.8km of trail on Fromme, Seymour and Seymour Valley.  This work is made possible through permission from the Land Managers and support from our sponsors who are listed on the footer of our website, including our 27 Trail Adopters.  The NSMBA would like to offer our sincere thanks to our sponsors for their gracious support.
Here is a summary of the numbers of people involved and the amount of work accomplished in 2013:
Trail Adoption Plan: 647 volunteers from 27 Community organizations completed 66 TAP trail days in 2013, contributing 4137 hours of work on 19 trails 
Builders Academy: 60 volunteers graduated from the Academy in 2013 and conducted over 300 hours of specialized trail care projects.
Public Trail Days: The NSMBA held 8 trail days in 2013 in which 150+ volunteers conducted over 900 hours of trail work.

The work we do is led by our professional builders who are trained in the modern techniques of sustainable building and environmental care. This work is amplified by the hundreds of volunteers who care enough to donate their sweat equity into our trail projects.  The NSMBA would like to thank everyone who has contributed in some way to help share the work load at hand.  
The NSMBA Board of Directors are volunteers who donate much of their personal time to guide the organization, implement strategies and conduct events.  We do this because we care about our community.
The core strength of our collective efforts is the power of community: people working together to make the Shore a better place.
The NSMBA Community Programs include: the North Shore Trail Adoption Plan, the North Shore Builders Academy, the Shore Corps (Academy graduates) & Public Trail Days.

The NSMBA are leaders in modern techniques to bring our inherited network to a sustainable standard that includes care for the environment.  We have grown our partnerships with the Land Managers through our responsible framework.  These strengthened partnerships with the DNV, Metro Vancouver and BC Parks will ensure future care of our trails through our stewardship programs.  The NSMBA would like to recognize these partnerships and thank the Land Managers for their collaborative efforts working together towards shared goals.
