Celebrate International Trail Day in the UNESCO Fundy Biosphere Reserve

Posted May 30, 2011

Come celebrate International Trail Day in the UNESCO Fundy Biosphere Reserve and be one of the firsts to try out the new Trans Canada Trail BioKits!

In celebration of International Trails Day, the UNESCO Fundy Biosphere Reserve is introducing the new Trans Canada Trail BioKit! The UNESCO Fundy Biosphere Reserve has been contributing to the development of the Trans Canada Trail BioKits for several months. Initially developed by Environment Canada Biosphere in Montreal, these BioKits have been adapted for use on trails anywhere in Canada. BioKits are essentially activity books used to engage families to go out and experience nature all along the Trans Canada Trail. We will be piloting the BioKits on International Trail Day (Saturday, June 4th) at different locations throughout the Fundy Biosphere Reserve.

Locations:

Saturday June 4, 2011

The BioKits’ main goal is to encourage families to go outside and reconnect with nature using their 5 senses, by taking the time to look around and listen to the nature around them. This event will also look to raise awareness of the Trans Canada Trail and its trails within the Fundy Biosphere Reserve. The information provided by the diagnosis section of the BioKits will feed into a database and be used to help track the health of the trails.

Example of the BioKits, can be found on the following website:
