The Wolverine Nordic and Mountain Society (WNMS) and Tumbler Ridge Museum Foundation (TRMF) have been hard at work over the winter months developing brochures that will boost and promote tourism in Tumbler Ridge, and enhance opportunities for residents. Publishing is by Tumbler Ridge News and printing in Tumbler Ridge and Edmonton.
First is the new Community Centre Museum Exhibits brochure. Eight years in the making, these exhibits have been completed in the last few weeks, and now total twenty-seven. Five thousand copies of a colour brochure are being printed, with funding from BC150 and the Heritage Legacy Fund of BC. These will guide visitors, residents and students through these exhibits.
The Monkman Pass Memorial Trail is another attraction of international potential for the area. The Driving Tour and Hiking Route brochures have been updated, complete with accurate GPS points, and 1500 and 2500 are being printed and distributed.
Finally, the two main interpretive self-guiding trails (Murray Canyon Overlook and Stone Corral) now have revamped and enhanced brochures, which will be available at trailheads and the Visitor Centre. These complement the thirty hiking trail brochures already developed by WNMS.
PDF versions of all these new brochures are being developed, so that they will be accessible on the Wolverine, Museum, District and BC Parks websites as well. Together, this material forms a powerful additional tool to help Tumbler Ridge reach its abundant tourism potential.
