The plan includes input from Local First Nations, park visitors, District of North Vancouver, North Shore Rescue and park partners, all of whom identified protection of park ecosystems, trail improvements and safety as high priorities. </p><p>The management plan highlights opportunities to protect and enhance park ecology through forest management, invasive species removal, reduced trail braiding, nature interpretation and volunteer stewardship. The plan also establishes trail standards, future connector trails, improved signage and trailhead enhancements to improve safety and experience for the public.</p></div>http://www.metrovancouver.org/metroupdate/PublishingImages/issue49-grouse.jpg2019-01-31T08:00:00ZGP0|#6fcc8566-898c-4e9b-8ad0-9296abc3c2f1;L0|#06fcc8566-898c-4e9b-8ad0-9296abc3c2f1|Issue 49;GTSet|#d14ffe11-45dc-48fb-8684-ff109cf15a74<div class="ExternalClass422F5276D99A4214882371690D430997"><p>​Metro Vancouver is moving ahead with a management plan for Grouse Mountain Regional Park, which includes the Grouse Grind Trail, the BCMC Trail and a portion of the Baden Powell Trail and protects 74-hectares of steep forest ecosystems with riparian corridors and an area of old growth forest. </p></div>0A hiker explores the BCMC Trail in Grouse Mountain Regional Park
