|The Learning Lodge|
In 1996, a film production company built a temporary building for movie scenes shot in the Lower Seymour Conservation Reserve.
Afterwards, the company donated that part of the movie set to Metro Vancouver. The building was moved to its current location, near the Rice Lake Gate. It became The Learning Lodge, a place where students and other visitors met to learn about nature in our region.
That temporary structure must be removed because of the building’s overall poor quality and geotechnical concerns. It will be demolished this summer. Metro Vancouver will provide an alternate facility for school programs.

|Fisherman's Trail Upgrade and 2014 Closures|
Expect closures of Fisherman's Trail North of Homestead and up to the Spur 4 trail junction over the following months. During closures, large machines and trucks may be present not allowing anyone to pass. Set dates are not confirmed, but signage will be posted prior to trail closures.
With the last major upgrades occuring in the mid-1990's, maintenance is now required to alleviate trail impacts as a result of small slides, erosion, and failing infrastructure.
We are working towards a safer and more sustainable trail network for everyone's enjoyment.
Over the next few years we will be working on:
- Boardwalk Removal and Repair
- Trail Re-surfacing
- Drainage Improvements
- Bridge Replacements
Expect short delays and work crews in this area. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions or concerns.
Thank you for your patience.

|Dog Mountain: On-Leash Advisory|
All dogs on the Dog Mountain trail are required to be on-leash at all times. This supports Dog Mountain’s status as a sensitive sub-alpine ecosystem in the LSCR Management Plan. Furthermore, it aligns Metro Vancouvers’ dog rules with BC Parks’ in the surrounding area, and supports wildlife and public safety.

|LSCR Waste Stream Diversion Facility|
The LSCR is committed to reducing waste and we are taking an innovative approach to waste management. Twelve of our garbage only
cans have been removed from the trail network and re-located to the main parking lot, creating a recycling-focused Waste Stream Diversion Facility
. LSCR visitors will now be able to sort their waste by type. Examples include Bottles and Cans, Dog Waste, Food Waste, and Mixed Paper. When you visit the LSCR, please help our initiative by sorting your waste accordingly. The proper sorting of waste products will prevent the majority of LSCR waste from entering permanent landfill storage. If you pack it in
, please pack it out to the LSCR Waste Stream Diversion Facility
|Mountain Bike Structure Decommissioning|
Safety inspections of existing mountain bike structures on LSCR land are being conducted. Some mountain bike structures on popular LSCR trails (Ned’s, Dale’s, etc.) have reached their lifespan and may now present a safety hazard to users due to structural or surfacing deficiencies. Those structures deemed to be unsafe and beyond repair are being removed.
|Metro Vancouver Supporting the NSMBA Trail Adoption Program (TAP)|
Metro Vancouver is supporting the North Shore Mountain Bike Association (NSMBA) in their commitment to trail maintenance and restoration. Please expect some work to be underway on the following trails this season within the LSCR: Ned’s, Bottle Top, Circuit-8 and Corkscrew. Please note that this work will include the removal of structures in unsatisfactory condition. Your patience is appreciated while this work is being carried out.
