AGM Registration and Sign-up for Hikes Now Open

You won’t want to miss this year’s AGM, set for Sunday April 21. You’ll hear about highlights from 2023, you can congratulate our award recipients, and you can be inspired by our guest speaker Shimeem Al-Ayash. Sign up for a hike before the catered lunch at the Kortright Centre and make it a complete day of exercise, camaraderie and learning. You can order your tickets now.

You’ll be able to get there by bus from either of two subway stations, at a cost of $25 for adult members and $10 for child members. Sign up here for a bus leaving from Kipling Subway Station,  or here for one from York Mills Subway Station. Once you arrive at Kortright, you can choose any one of 3 hikes – one with a nature photography theme, another with a biodiversity theme, and a third that’s a 7.7 km loop hike with some hills to give you a bit of a workout. You can also choose to explore the trails on your own.

If you are driving to Kortright, you can join Frank Ye & Jen Zhang on a 9k hike through variable terrain starting from Centre. Sign up for their hike here. (There is no cost for the car hike.)

After the morning hikes, a full lunch is offered (Cost is $27 per person). Check-in is at 11:00 a.m. with lunch at 11:45 a.m. Then you’ll proceed to the auditorium at 1 p.m. for the Annual Meeting.

Guest speaker Shimeen Al-Ayash will explore what it means to foster a sense of belonging as it relates to the Bruce Trail, drawing on her personal experience and on her role at the BTC where she chairs the inter-club Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Belonging committee.
