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. 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 programs@galtt.ca 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.
