Nature Manitoba Outings

Hike 'n Eat: Central Manitoba to St. Joseph

October 20, 2019
General Trips / INTERMEDIATE

We're going, no matter what! But as it is difficult to assess how much snow will not have melted in the rural areas, we shall hike around some communities, then attend one of the province's finest fall dinners French-Canadian style, and yes, they are shamelessly promoting their bacon pie. For Nature Manitoba members only. Registration commences October 13.

Walk Into A Tree. Casual 5 to 7 km round-trip walk/hike along the Red River through giant cottonwoods in Kildonan Park and Rivergrove. We will visit a tree you can walk into without bouncing off of and that is one of the few living things you can hug from the inside.
