The Canadian Parks and Wilderness Society is the country’s only nationwide charity dedicated to the protection of Canada’s waterways and natural public lands, and of its parks’ management to ensure the wilderness within them is protected.

Allan Macaulay, president of the Devon Nordic Ski Club, gave council a brief overview of the club’s successful winter season, thanking the town and council for its support throughout the winter months. A huge number of Devon residents and visitors of all ages were visiting the trails in the Devon river valley over the winter to enjoy some outdoor recreation, and the club’s youth programming saw a full roster of kids of all ages participating.

Council accepted both presentations as information.
