Our enterprise, Ecoworks Landscape Services, was recently awarded a Job Creation Partnership contract. 5 participants will receive 28 weeks of work experience and skill enhancement in trail construction, carpentry and landscaping, as well as exposure and safe handling of heavy equipment operation.
The participants will help with the expansion of recreation trails and park amenities related to the Experience the Fraser (ETF) initiative for public use including Island 22 Regional Park, Chilliwack; Cheam Lake Wetland Regional Park, Popkum; Mission Tree Farm Licence #26, Mission; Chilliwack ETF Trail, Chilliwack; and Fraser Pacific Enterprises Trail, Mission. New trails will provide recreation and health benefits and help connect communities and natural areas.
