More info on Canada Day morning walk

For the Canada Day Observation Mountain walk in Grand Forks, B.C., there are three starting points: Copper Ridge (easiest), Barbara Ann Park (longer) and the wildlife hall (harder).

To clarify the information in last week’s edition of The Gazette on the Observation Mountain walk, there are three starting points: Copper Ridge (easiest), Barbara Ann Park (longer) and the wildlife hall (harder).

All start times are 9:30 a.m. with a guide and take less than one hour to get to the top. All animals are welcome, including humans.

At 11:00 a.m. we sing O Canada at the Star, then return to join-in with the city’s festivities at Gyro Park by 12 noon.

It is suggested that red and white clothing would be worn, along with stout shoes or good runners and a bottle of water.  If you haven’t walked much recently, it is recommended that practice walks, increasing to three kilometres, should be done during the week before July 1.

A part of a trail is wheelchair-accessible with helpers.

We hope to see dogs and their handlers as well as adventurous citizens.
