SOTA serves as a vector for collaborative achievements related to front and back-country singletrack recreation trails. The South Okanagan hosts many hiking and biking clubs up and down its corridor; the Oliver-Osoyoos Naturalists Club, Penticton's Outdoor Adventurers, Penticton H3 Shiggy Dusters and Penticton Outdoor Club, Summerland 'Old Farts' Club (no website) Peachland's Trekkers and West Kelowna's Hiking Addiction.
The South and Central Okanagan Naturalists Clubs and numerous NGO's round out the significant array of individuals interested in hiking / trail-walking / running. With this many active partners, just think that we can accomplish if we pool our collective minds and resourcefulness! Change doesn't come easily - on any level, and the best thing that we can do for our existing land-access, its flora and fauna and the future of outdoor recreation in our valleys is to share knowledge and skills in order to forward our positive addenda.
