We are hiking and paddling along Canada's Great Trail (formerly the Trans Canada Trail), starting in the spring of 2019. We will begin in Cape Spear, NL and walk west to Victoria, BC before paddling from Fort Saskatchewan, AB to Tuktoyaktuk, NT.
As we hike the Great Trail, we will be raising awareness of the importance of protecting wild birds and their habitats across Canada. We will highlight the many opportunities available for becoming active participants in the vibrant outdoor recreation, conservation, and Citizen Science communities across Canada. Our focus will be on connecting families and youth to nature through birding, and inspiring a passion to become lifelong explorers, outdoor enthusiasts, and protectors of wilderness.
Our dedication and enthusiasm are boundless, but we cannot achieve our goals alone. Our primary means of funding this trek is through personal savings. From this, our current budget for covering food, shelter, and necessary supplies over the three year period is only $10/day/person. To make this journey a success we are looking for your support. Together we can make a difference!
The funds collected through this site will be used to help cover the cost of food, shelter, and basic supplies. All funds we do not use for those purposes will be donated to Bird Studies Canada to help conserve Canada's wild birds. Please send any monetary donations through our secure PayPal gateway.
