Presentation to highlight some of Calgary’s lesser-known walking routes

March 2, 2017 by  

Local author Lori Beattie has written a book that outlines what she feels are some of Calgary’s best walks, and during an upcoming evening, she will be presenting her work to other walkers from the community.

According to the event’s listing, they city has hundreds of kilometers of trails, and Beattie will be sharing visuals of the different routes she has followed, including the 35 new ones that have recently been added. She will also be discussing her Walk 150 initiative, which she developed in celebration of the country’s 150th birthday. Those who come out will have an opportunity to learn about walking routes they may not know of, and also to share their favorite paths with the other attendees. The organizers of an event like this can use online printing to order maps of the area’s walking paths and other handouts for distribution to those who attend the event.

The author’s information session and discussion has been planned for the Fish Creek Environmental Learning Centre on Tuesday, April 20 from 7:00 pm until 8:00 pm. There is no entry fee for Friends of Fish Creek members, while for nonmembers, tickets are $5 each. Donations to the centre will be gratefully accepted.

Anyone who is interested in registering for the event, or who simply wants to find out more, is invited to visit the Friends of Fish Creek website.
