Members of the Sudbury 4-H Club joined together to pledge their health to better living in their most recent hiking initiative. The group teamed up to explore the Junction Creek Waterway Park, a non-motorized trail system located in Greater Sudbury. The Junction Creek Waterway Park is home to five urban trails that serve to promote healthy active living and act as a gateway to the natural environment.
In the Fall of 2018, members, leaders and volunteers of Sudbury 4-H met every Thursday evening to explore the five urban trails and learn about the uniqueness of each one. The club also took the opportunity to learn about GPS training and survival skills, expertise that is imperative for anyone taking part in a healthy active lifestyle in the outdoors.
Sudbury 4-H took their pledge one step further and organized a full-day hike to Killarney Provincial Park where they climbed what is known as, “The Crack”. The six-kilometre journey involved steep terrain, but the hikers were rewarded with breathtaking views of the white hills of the La Cloche mountains.
Thank you, Paulette MacDonald of Sudbury 4-H, for submitting details and photos about this exciting club.
