The Myra Canyon Trestle Restoration Society is a non-profit Society dedicated to improvement of the former Kettle Valley Railway right-of-way between historical Myra and Ruth stations located in Myra Bellevue Provincial Park near Kelowna. This marvel of railway engineering includes 18 trestles and two tunnels within a 12 kilometre reach that is now totally restored following the Okanagan Mountain Fire in 2003. The Society undertakes activities such as construction and maintenance of storm shelters and memorial benches, clearing of rocks and trees and mudslides, repairs to trestle decking and railing, improvements to the paths, and preservation and enhancement of historical features and artifacts. This work is carried out under a Partnership Agreement with B.C. Parks.
The Society is seeking volunteers to assist in these activities and to serve on the Board of Directors.
