Charles will view Bonshaw's wilderness park and walk the new trail there.

Eddie Reardon is one of the transportation crew workers getting the site ready.

“There is probably in the vicinity of 40 mature dead trees over along the boundary of the park,” he said. “It's a danger for people in under the trees or for children playing or anything.”

The park is one stop on the 22-hour visit to the province. 

Charles and Camilla arrive on the evening of May 19 and depart the next afternoon, after the Bonshaw tour.
