CARP – The Friends of the Carp Hills have lost control of their old Facebook page.

Whether it be Russian spies rigging an upcoming election; dark web conspirators attempting to manipulate the flow of information; or a disgruntled duck with high-functioning computer skills, the Friends of the Carp Hills have decided to cut bait and move to a new pond. Figuratively.

“We, the Friends of the Carp Hills organization, report that on Oct. 2 we lost control of the Administrator role on our Facebook group,” FCH board President Janet Mason released in a statement yesterday (Oct. 15). “We can no longer vouch for the information that appears on the Facebook group that bears our name.”

The hard-working environmental volunteer organization has decided to launch a new Facebook group called Friends of the Carp Hills Organization and you can find it here.

“We encourage Friends of the Carp Hills Group members to Like our new Facebook page,” Mason said. “Our new Facebook page is home to your trusted source for sharing information about the Carp Hills – events, alerts, news, activities, history, ecology and more. We look forward to welcoming you.”

The original page was, sort of, a shared resource but that agreement came to an end recently FCH trails coordinator Bernard Proulx says.

“The FCH organization used to share admin rights however this came to an end to our surprise and dismay,” Proulx posted on social media. “We reached out to find a solution without any success. We hope our new Facebook page will become yours and other trail users like you, your new source of information about our organization and the Crazy Horse Trail. Thank you for your support and happy trails.”
