Yarmouth and Argyle Recreation are very excited to be hosting a regional launch event to celebrate the launch of the much anticipated Nova Scotia Trail Guide, a new online database of trails! The Nova Scotia Trails Federation has built this in partnership with Recreation Nova Scotia, Nova Scotia Connect, and the Province of Nova Scotia, and this online guide is your ultimate resource to find details on your favourite trails, water routes, or volunteer trail organizations throughout the province!
While the provincial launch is happening in the Halifax area, regions are hosting satellite events. Municipalities are partners in the Connect database with recreation staff very involved in the management of this service. In the past four years, over 600,000 people from Nova Scotia and around the world have turned to NSConnect to discover recreation opportunities in every corner of the province. Trails are an often searched category within the database. The Trails Guide has been developed to support the trails community, to make trails information more accessible to more people, and to ultimately inspire people to venture into nature.
If you are able, please join us at the Pubnico Point Trail this Friday. A short presentation of the Trail Guide will take place at 11 am. We are hoping to live stream the event happening in Halifax. A short guided hike (approx 1.5 km) will take place following the launch. Snacks will be provided.
