    Hello. I’m so sorry that I missed this event! It’s in my neighbourhood, and I teach outdoor education in this community as well. I’d love to add more Indigenous perspective to my knowledge, and I have colleagues who would be interested as well. Any chance you’ll be leading another walk in Warden Woods this year?

      Now that we’ve done the tour once it would be much easier to organize a future tour in the area. We don’t currently have plans to lead another free public tour in the area, but if we do we will advertise it via our blog and social media so stay tuned!
