Our Community

The best part about being a nature lover, is the community that springs up as a result. We are lucky to have so many diverse, passionate, and knowledgeable people in the Ottawa region and beyond. This is ah-mazing because it means that those looking for resources, guided hikes, trail knowledge, events, etc – have a wealth of experience people to draw from. It also means that not one person needs to do it all for our community, we are rich because of our diversity and community spirit. Go on and check ’em out. Follow them. Reach out.  #communityiseverything #riseup
