People, Nature, Footpath Webinar Series
Each year, we host this educational webinar series to help Trail users gain new skills, meet amazing adventurers, and learn about the natural history and ecology of the North Shore.
The webinars are free to attend; a $25 donation is requested to help support the Trail and cover the cost of producing the series. Registration is required, and attendees will need to sign up for a free Zoom account.
