Today we celebrate Day 6 of our ‘12 Days of Giving’ with the Gift of Conservation. The Bruce Trail winds its way in, out, up, down and around all the communities where we live, work and play. We are so fortunate to enjoy unlimited free access to the most beautiful hiking trails in Ontario. The Bruce Trail is Canada's oldest and longest marked footpath. This trail provides the only continuous public access throughout the magnificent Niagara Escarpment, a UNESCO World Biosphere Reserve. Running along the Escarpment from Niagara to Tobermory, it spans more than 890 km of Main Trail, identified with white markings, and over 400 km of associated Side Trails, offering direction with blue markings.
Today our gift went to the Bruce Trail Conservancy. Donations help with trail maintenance, creation or re-direction of new routes, the building and re-building of bridges and look-outs, and the assembly and acquisition of land to further enhance and conserve our natural play ground. Having outdoor green space to enjoy and experience is a gift we give to future generations. As Conservation International says, “Nature doesn’t need Humans… Humans need Nature.” The Jen Scholte Team hopes you take the opportunity to experience the Bruce Trail by hiking, cycling, snow shoeing or skiing. The Bruce Trail truly is one of our favorites!
