Hiking & FR/EN on Thursdays

Hike on Mount Royal and in the neighbourhood while practicing your French and English! We’ll walk, get fresh air and exercise, and have a weekly language exchange with neighbours! Just wear decent walking shoes – sometimes we’ll venture onto smaller trails! Rain or shine. Beautiful colours, crisp fall air, and maybe we’ll even hear an owl hooting! This fall you’ll learn about a new kind of tree each week!

When: Thursday evenings starting October 1st, from 6 pm – 7:45 pm approximately

Where: We meet at the bottom of the Mountain at the Mordecai Richler gazebo.

Cost: $50 ($10-$50 for low-income newcomers to Canada) to sign up for 9 outings, plus taxes and an annual $10 membership card to the Association récréative Milton-Parc.  If you are a low-income newcomer, please write me at [email protected] and confirm that your situation corresponds to all of the criteria in the above link. Then I will explain how to register with a discount.  Please be in touch – it would be great to have you!
