Bruce Trail Association : Lifetime Achievement Award – 2006

2007 marks the 40th anniversary of the now world-famous Bruce Trail and its association. It’s members donate over100,000 hours of volunteer time each year to maintaining the oldest and longest public footpath in Canada and helping to protect the world biosphere reserve that envelopes it. Every blaze, every boardwalk, every bridge and every stile on over1200 kilometres of trail is maintained by volunteers. They give us the means to explore the richness of the escarpment and generate the commitment to preserve it into perpetuity.
