Winter may have arrived, but no one at TCT is quite ready to settle down for the holidays yet! It’s been a busy month – beginning with the Nature Inspiration Awards, where we won in the category for small or medium non-profits!
A week later, the entire TCT team met in Montreal to plan our activities for next year. Since many of my colleagues live and work in different locations across the country, it was a wonderful chance to exchange ideas on Trail improvements, fun activities and fostering inclusion on the Trail, while keeping the needs of our partners, volunteers and supporters in mind. I felt very inspired about our future afterwards, and I can’t wait to share the details of our ideas for next year with you!
It’s also been rewarding to see the great improvements happening on the Trail across Canada, including the construction of the incredible elevated park in St. Thomas! You can read more about this and other projects that your donations have supported below.
Trans Canada Trail
We won a Nature Inspiration Award!
TCT is both honoured and grateful to have received a Nature Inspiration Award from the Canadian Museum of Nature last month! We’re proud of the achievement, but it would only have been possible with the support of thousands of Canadians who have helped make this Trail a reality.
Michael Jeffrey Marshall, an avid hiker from B.C., was just 41 years old when he passed away suddenly this year. To honour his love of the outdoors, Mike’s loved ones came together to make a tribute gift in his name.
