International Trails Day - June 4th! 

 Celebrate International Trails Day on June 4th!In partnership with the Woodlands Multi-use Trail Association we are hosting a trail community clean-up on the Barrington Bay Trail.

Please meet at 9am at the trail kiosk near Subway. All ages and abilities welcome - this is a great time for your trail walk (at whatever pace you choose - it IS Saturday morning , after all!) while making your community a cleaner, healthier space.

We will supply all your equipment and also list this project as part of the Municipal Community Clean-up program which will provide a donation to the trail group association. Their volunteers work very hard to make this recreation facility amazing, and this is a small way to say "thank you". 

Are you participating in  Make Your Move Challenge? This is a perfect activity to add movement to your day!
