Walking on your own or with a group
Want to travel in a pack? You can find organized nature walks in your community by visiting a number of websites including Parks Canada or one of our provincial affiliates. Or, organize a group – perhaps your colleagues at work, your school class, social club, or community organization would like to get involved. Encourage everyone to log their kilometers in the Walk for Wildlife.
Prefer to roam free? Wildlife and wildlife habitat are seldom far away. Find a nature trail, forest, or shoreline near you and explore the species that live and thrive there. Discover what native plants are indigenous to your region. Listen to the music of migrating songbirds as they return home. Welcome wildlife animals who are coming out of their winter hibernation. Wonder at the oceans, lakes and rivers that comprise Canada’s waterways. Most of all get outdoors and enjoy your Walk for Wildlife.
Don’t forget to log and support your walk
Remember to log your kms. Each kilometer logged get us closer to our goal of walking across Canada. Each dollar raised will support CWF research, education and programs.
