Ken Campbell

Kelowna, British Columbia

In 1993, Ken Campbell single handedly raised awareness of the engineering wonder of the Myra Canyon Trestles and, with passionate determination, directed its two-year restoration while successfully securing provincial park status and Canadian heritage site designation. Ten years later, the Okanagan Park Mountain fire destroyed the trestles and Ken Campbell was called upon again to lead its restoration. Ken led the team that saw the project completed on-time and on-budget. Restoring the Myra Canyon Trestles has not just conserved part of our province’s history but through the unselfish leadership and example of Ken Campbell, it has created a groundswell of local volunteer effort devoted to the preservation of our past.
