We are excited to announce some huge news from our member, Manuel’s River Interpretation Centre this morning!

During a press release at 9:30 AM, members of the municipal, provincial and federal government were joined by stakeholders, community partners, and friends to announce funding for the expansion of the Manuels River Trail. The development will seek to make trails safer, more accessible, and bring focus to education and conservation in the area.

In doing this, Manuel’s River Natural Heritage Society hopes to eliminate stairs and allow for wider pathways.

This project, totaling a combined investment of $652,000 from 3 levels of government, will be completed by next spring.

 As Manuels River has seen over 210,000 visits in 2018 alone, this natural resource is a crucial piece of tourism and community development for Conception Bay South.

“Tourism can transform and diversify local economies.” (Ken McDonald)
