Come out and celebrate Canada’s oldest and longest public footpath on October 6, 2019

Hamilton, Ontario – The Bruce Trail Conservancy and eight of its Bruce Trail Clubs, in partnership with Ontario Power Generation, are proud to host the 18th annual Bruce Trail Day. From free-guided hikes to family activities, breathtaking views to the discovery of an amazing variety of life along the Niagara Escarpment, there’s something for everyone in the family to enjoy.

“I’m especially excited about this year’s Bruce Trail Day,” says Michael McDonald, Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the Bruce Trail Conservancy. “This will be my first Bruce Trail Day as CEO. Having been a Club President just three months ago, one of my favourite things to do was to lead hikes, and watch people fall in love with nature.”

Whether you come to a Bruce Trail Day event or find your own way to celebrate, everyone is invited to join the 24-hour hashtag campaign on October 6. For every use of the hashtag #BruceTrailDay2019 on October 6, 2019, Ontario Power Generation will donate $1 to the Bruce Trail Conservancy in support of its conservation and trail work, up to $5000.00.
