On Saturday June 19, Rod O’Connell was recognized with a beautiful plaque for his role in the recommissioning of the Sentier Nepisiguit Mi’gmaq Trail among his colleagues from the Maritime College of Forest Technology campus Bathurst and the grass roots volunteers of the trail organization. Rod O’Connell was the founding director of the francophone campus of the Maritime Forest Ranger School and in his retirement sits as the President of the Sentier Nepisiguit Mi’gmaq Trail organization.

 

The Plaque with a dedication to Rod O’Connell was placed on the trail at one of his favourite spots which has been officially named Rod O’Connell Lookout. The lookout is a breathtaking view of the river high on a ridge on section I-J which can be located on the trail map.

 

The Plaque reads,

 

Rod O’Connell was the founding director of the francophone campus of the Maritime Forest Ranger School.

 

Rod, through his vision, passion and dedication was a major inspiration in the realization of the Nepisiguit Mi’gmaq Trail.

 

Take the time to enjoy this view of the Nepisiguit River Valley, one of Rod O’Connell’s favourite spots.

 

Congratulations and thank you from the entire trail organization, volunteers and sponsors.  A special thank you from all who have and will continue to enjoy this beautiful trail.
