forested hiking trail near Hamilton, ON


Sean and I are passionate about hiking and the outdoors, and we have chosen to walk across Canada from St. John's, NL to Victoria, BC, and to paddle from Edmonton, AB to Tuktoyaktuk, NT to learn more about its landscapes, its wildlife, and its people.  For us this journey is about connections - people to people, people to nature, past to present, coast-to-coast-to-coast.  We strongly believe that taking a few minutes each day to get outside into nature, disconnect from the digital world, and spend some time with our thoughts or talking to other people helps us all connect with ourselves, our families, our communities, and our natural environment.  In an effort to give back to the communities we pass through, we are walking to raise awareness of the importance of conserving wild birds and their habitats, and to promote the many opportunities that are available for people to participate in conservation initiatives in their own region. As we walk we will be passing through more than 73 Important Bird Areas, and we invite you to join us in learning about their importance and the opportunities they offer for exploring, enjoying, and protecting birds and the natural world.  Whether you are interested in learning more about our journey, or about how you can become involved in the conservation of birds and our natural world in your own region, whether you have a story of your own to tell us, or even if you just feel like going for a walk, we invite you to COME WALK WITH US.
