Hello kind krafters!
I hope you’re all doing well and enjoying the transition into the fall season. Today we are talking about a very important issue, and one close to the kind kraft community. Our current cause is sustainable transportation, with the proceeds of kraft sales supporting the work of local Halifax Non-Profit Trips by Transit. Trips by Transit is an incredible organization, dedicated to connecting students and the community with adventure and outdoor experiences in a sustainable and accessible way.
As those of you who know me, or have read my previous blog posts will know, outdoor education is a passion of mine. I am particularly interested in the ways in which I can further promote and help to create a more inclusive and accessible outdoor experience for my community, and individuals everywhere. I spent my summer mapping trails in order to ensure that the resources available for recreationalists in my community were accurate, up to date, and informative, in order for every hiker and walker, of any level of outdoor experience, to have as much information and tools as possible to make their outdoor adventures positive and safe. Similarly, the work of Trips by Transit seeks to connect students and members of our community at large to nature in a positive and accessible way. Trips by Transit shows the community ways in which nature can become more accessible, and takes the inspiring step of demonstrating that accessibility through their guided hikes which all begin with a bus ride.
Susie’s Lake Trail, one of my favorite hikes and a trail easily accessible by bus.
