News Release - Salmon Arm gets ready for BIke to Work Week with First Ever Bicycle Parkade

Friends - Bike to Work Week will be upon us in a week, and we're trying to get word out that Lori Schneider Wood and I will be temporarily moving the Shuswap Trail Alliance office down to a store front on Hudson Street in Salmon Arm for the week (May 30 - June 3, everyday, 7:30 am - 6 pm) and will be doing double duty as a temporary supervised bicycle parkade for the week. Absolutely FREE. And to sweeten the ride, Downtown Salmon Arm is giving out $2 Bike Bucks to the first 100 bicycles to come through the door. Hope you can spread the news!

Salmon Arm Bay Foreshore Trail Closed to Dogs during critical nesting season


The Shuswap, British Columbia – The Salmon Arm Bay is having babies! Visitors to the popular foreshore trail are asked to take extra care this spring – including leaving their dogs at home – to ensure the many birds, amphibians, fish, and mammals that live in the nature reserve have ample space to nest and raise their young.

It was at the 2014 ROOTS&BLUES Festival when Cannery Row showed Salmon Arm audiences what an outstanding and diverse ensemble they are.

At a Sunday night Boogie Bar-N concert, and multiple workshops that included memorable contributions to the Positively Fourth Street session, Gary Comeau, Tim Hearsay and Chris Nordquist rocked our site with a blend of Cajun/bayou, blues, and swing sounds that were embraced by roots music fans of all ages.
