On November 6th Burlington Branch manager Peter Long was honoured as being a “Champion of the Bruce Trail Conservancy” during the 2014 donor recognition event.
Pictured with Peter is the director of fund raising Jan Graves. The award was presented by Bruce Trail Conservancy president Janice McClelland.
The Bruce Trail Conservancy is a charitable organization committed to establishing a conservation corridor containing a public footpath along the Niagara Escarpment, in order to protect its natural ecosystems and to promote environmentally responsible public access to this UNESCO World Biosphere Reserve.
Peter noted that The Bruce Trail is the oldest and longest continuous public footpath in Canada, and it is right here in our back yards. “I found hiking on the Bruce Trail invigorates my mind, body and spirit and it feels like a “mini” vacation. The natural beauty of the trail can be enjoyed by experienced hikers or those who just want to get out for a leisurely afternoon hike”.
