Enjoy guided walks at Birds Hill Park

  • Print

Two more guided walks are slated at Birds Hill Park.

The Boomers and Zoomers program will hold free walks on March 5 and April 9 to round out its season or guided walk programs for active older adults.

On March 5, attendees will explore the 1.8-kilometre Nimowin Trail beginning at 10 a.m. at the trailhead at the end of Nimowin Road. Walkers will be encouraged to look at the changes as winter recedes and spring charges in, and will be on the lookout for animal tracks and the pukak layer of snow. Snowshoes will be available for this particular walk.

On April 9, walkers will take on the four-kilometre Chickadee Trail, beginning at 10 a.m. at the Chickadee Trailhead on North Drive. Attendees will see plants that grow along the trail and check out the viewing tower at Griffith’s Hill, which is the highest elevation in the park.

Attendees are encouraged to wear warm, sturdy footwear and to bring walking sticks and water bottles. Registration is not required. Pets are welcome, though they must be kept on a short leash.

Those looking for more information can contact the Park Interpreter’s office by emailing Lindsey.Mitton@gov.mb.ca or calling 204-654-6739.
