Monthly Meeting: 40 Days & 40 Hikes on the Bruce Trail

April 8 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

In her book 40 Days & 40 Hikes (out April 9, 2024) this adventurer, author, and environmentalist sets herself a new challenge: to hike the Bruce Trail from Niagara to Tobermory in her own creative way – in 40 cleverly crafted day-loops covering over 900 kilometers.  As Ross walks, she reveals stories of the trail’s flora and fauna, geology and history. The Bruce Trail becomes the central character as she ponders her role in protecting the fragile corner of the planet that is entwined in her DNA. Despite long days on the trail, encounters with bears, ticks, and a deadly derecho, her passion for Ontario’s “ribbon of wilderness” grows.

Nicola Ross is a National Magazine Award–winning journalist and the bestselling author of six Loops & Lattes hiking guides, with over 50,000 copies in print. She lives with her partner, Alex, in a converted sawmill (circa 1857) in Caledon, Ontario.

Location:  McMaster Innovation Park, 175 Longwood Road South, Hamilton

Please park in Lot 1 or Lot 5, north of the building.  Meeting is in room C/D on the ground floor at the back of the atrium.  Social time starts at 7:00 PM, talk begins at 7:30 PM
