The Ribbons of Green Trails Society of Vernon, British Columbia, Canada is dedicated to the promotion and construction of walking, hiking and cycling trails, both on and
off-road within the Greater Vernon region
.
 
Our Mission Statement states:
To promote and encourage the construction of trails located in the geographic area of the North Okanagan Regional District, for the purpose of non-motorized (except when used by the physically challenged) public use, and in particular, trails that:
  • connect Swan Lake, Okanagan Lake and Kalamalka Lake;
  • connect such other sites that the Society considers desirable;
  • increase community participation in healthy activities;
  • educate the users of the trails about the geography, plants, and culture in the areas where the trails are located; and
  • demonstrate the benefits of a civic and politic community working cooperatively for a common goal.

The Ribbons of Green Trail Society currently consists of 11 directors who meet once a month to advance trail development and ensure maintenance.

City of Vernon staff and Council Members, as well as the Regional District of North Okanagan Parks staff are also in attendance at the monthly meetings.
