People often ask if GaLTT will do another Winter Walkabout series. The answer is no—that was a pandemic special—but we’ve got something just as good!

We’re really excited to announce a series of guided interpretive walks running on the first Saturdays of the month, January through May [UPDATED] June. Sign up to join us and learn more about Gabriola!

Because these are guided walks and we want to be sure everyone can hear the leaders speak, pre-registration is required and will be limited to 20 people per walk. Register at beginning on Wednesday December 13th (early registrations will NOT be accepted). Pre-registrants will receive a confirmation email with instructions for payment and more details about the walk you are signing up for.

The suggested donation for each walk is $10. Note that start times vary.

The length of each walk will be approximately an hour and a half.
