Wild Places, Wild Faces: A Year in Nature – November 2021
Scott and Trevor Haldane discovered a passion for amateur wildlife photography and wanted to inspire others to get outside and enjoy the beauty of the Canadian wilderness. In a unique online presentation, the father-son duo celebrated the incredible diversity of wildlife they’ve been lucky enough to spot along the Trail.
They turned their passion into not only a one-of-a-kind event, but also into a fundraiser by asking participants to consider a generous donation upon registering.

The Hodgkinson’s Toonies for the Trail
Joan Hodgkinson and her late husband, Geoff, of Chilliwack, BC, have been passionate Trans Canada Trail supporters since the 1980s. They wanted to share this passion with other residents of Hampton House Retirement Residence. In July 2015, a walk on the Trail and a picnic were planned for residents and families, and donations in support of Trans Canada Trail were collected. Sadly, Geoff passed in 2020, but the walk has become an annual tradition for Joan and the residents of Hampton House as a way to honour Geoff and to raise funds to support Trans Canada Trail.
