'Boots & Bevvies' Hike

Presented by BIPOC Outdoor Gear Library, supported by Merrell Canada. Come enjoy Lions Head Lookout with us!

Sat, August 6, 2022 | 8:00 AM – 7:30 PM EDT

Through the support of Merrell Hiking Club, Dionne Daley with BIPOC Outdoor Gear Library is hosting a fantastic day out at Lions Head Lookout. What better way to spend a Saturday than hiking with friends both new and old while diving deeper into yourself surrounded by all that nature has to offer. The ticket price is a set donation to BIPOC Outdoor Gear Library that goes towards furthering their gear library.

The Merrell Hiking Club was created to provide inspiration and connection to the outdoors. Showcasing urban, suburban, and adventure hikes across Canada, come and join the club to explore with us!

Connect and Protect: Guelph by Trout Unlimited Canada

Connect and Protect is a new program Trout Unlimited Canada created to provide space for Black, Indigenous and Racialized Communities, and allies to connect with and protect nature.

Sat, 24 September 2022 | 9:00 AM – 5:00 PM EDT

On September 24, 2022, join us for a free, full day event filled with knowledge sharing, community building, and placemaking. In the morning, Trout Unlimited Canada will lead the participants through a hands-on streambank restoration project, and highlight the importance of conservation. Afterwards, we’ll gather for lunch and have the opportunity to create community. In the afternoon, Brown Girl Outdoor World will lead a discussion on the importance of inclusive programming and the benefits of meaningful inclusion of diverse communities in conservation work. We'll end the day with Brown Girl Outdoor World leading an intro to fly fishing session, covering introductory information about fly fishing and the importance of conservation to the sport, followed by time on the water putting what we’ve learned into practice.
