By joining FOSS, your membership fees go towards creating and maintaining the extensive trail network in Myra-Bellevue and Okanagan Mountain Parks.
The 2003 fire that started in Okanagan Mountain Park and spread to Myra-Bellevue Park has increased the need for trail maintenance to a level that volunteers alone cannot fulfill. FOSS hires contractors to keep up with the increased water erosion repairs and windfall tree clearing required and this creates the need for additional funding.
