August 10, 2013 Deadline
Once again, Hike NS invites groups across NS to partner with it on delivering fall guided hikes in September and October of 2013. The purpose of the events is to: 1) get more people in NS hiking; 2) highlight local trails and increase their use; and 3) promote Hike NS and local trail/hiking groups and other partnering organizations. During the 2012 Fall Guided Hike series, 660 people attended 29 hikes organized locally by nine partnering groups.
Youth & Family Theme: This year, we’re encouraging hike host organizations to schedule a youth and family hike, one that is suited to families with children and youth. This means offering a hike of a length and difficulty level suited to children and youth and with activities attractive to kids. Hike NS will provide resources for activities to offer on hikes.
If you and your local organization would like to organize a hike, learn more and register your hike(s) online here no later than AUGUST 10, 2013.
