Project Code: WELD-01-111
Sponsor:Weldwood of Canada Ltd.

The primary purpose of this Project was the assumption of responsibility for campground & trail maintenance/enhancement for a number of facilities previously managed by the Government of Alberta in the greater Hinton area.

Its objectives included updating Action Plans, contracting the services of two Conservation Officers, maintaining existing recreation facilities [campgrounds & trails], and upgrading of several campgrounds.

During late Spring, Summer, and early Fall of 2004, a three-year Recreation Action Plan was updated for the years 2005 to 2007 inclusive, twenty-four Recreation Sites were managed/maintained, two recreation areas at Gregg Cabin and Petite Lake had new water pumps installed, woodbin roofs were built at Rock Lake and Whitehorse Creek, and a new footbridge was constructed across a small drainage on the Happy Creek Trail.

Additionally, a compendium of mostly favourable "user comments" was included in the 2004 Performance Report.
