Niagara-on-the-Lake's heritage trail committee is preparing to work on Phase 2 of trail improvements and will host an information session and free barbecue lunch on Earth Day, April 22, from 11:30 a.m. to 2 p.m.
The barbecue will be at the home of Steffanie Bjorgan at 404 Concession 1 and is open to anyone who wants to attend and learn more about the plans to expand the trail.
There is no charge for the lunch, but organizers are asking for donations toward the trail fund.
The committee is in charge of restoration of the Upper Canada Heritage Trail, which runs along an old railway bed from East and West Line heading south and ending at York Road near Queenston and St. Davids.
The completed Phase 1 opened in August 2021 and residents who have donated to the cause have been happy to see the work done.
When work was underway on the first phase, some residents were upset when some were cleared along the path.
Phase 2 of the upgrades will see work done to the section along Concession 1 from East and West Line to Line 3.
