Spring Welcome Hikes

A series of intercultural and participatory hikes to observe the arrival of spring and to welcome each other. Come share, participate and observe with our friendly group. Typically, we will hike to the top of Mount Royal. There will be technical and fun activities, as well as optional “homework”. Some outings will have a more specific theme; for example: identifying trees by their buds, spring wildflowers, etc.

Explanations will be bilingual depending on the group’s requirements.

When? Thursday evenings from March 31 until June 16 (12 weeks). We will meet at 5:30 p.m. at the start of the season to take advantage of the daylight. Starting April 21, we will meet at 6 p.m. The end time will vary depending on the outing but will be around 8/8:30 p.m.

Where? In Mount Royal Park. Meet in front of the Sir George-Etienne Cartier monument.
