Our mission

CONNECT THE TRAILS, CONNECT OUR COMMUNITY.

Since 1989, Manuels River Natural Heritage Society has been working to protect, conserve and enhance the Manuels River system, through wildlife habitat improvement, operation of an interpretation centre, the delivery of various educational programs, and the development of Manuels River trail system. Our current goal is to complete our Trail Master Plan, which includes:

Phase 2B

  • With the completion of Phase 2B, 1.35 kilometers of trail will be developed through improvements and extensions of the Manuels River Trails System.
  • Bubble Pond Look-Out: To upgrade and widen the existing trail, removing all wooden boardwalks and replacing them with gravel surfaces incorporating geotextile fabric for drainage. All wooden steps on upgraded section will be replaced by graded gravel surfaces where possible, or with stone steps where slopes are too aggressive for a graded gravel surface.
  • At Bubble Pond Look-out a fence will be installed to create a safe place for visitors to capture pictures of the picturesque view of the Manuels River Valley and the Atlantic Ocean in Conception Bay.
  • The Ocean Trail West – Martha’s Place to the Ocean: To upgrade and widen the existing trail and extend it to Conception Bay on the west river bank.

 

Phase 3

  • With the completion of Phase 3, 1.4 kilometers of trail will be developed through improvements and extensions of the Manuels River Trails System.

 

Manuels River Natural Heritage Society is a registered Canadian charity and non-profit organization that depends on community support.
