Two New Kirkendall Walks events
Two more events are planned by Environment Hamilton’s “Kirkendall Walks” project:
1) Being Safe While You Walk and Bike: a One-Hour Seminar
Personal safety is a matter of common sense. Learn practical guidelines to reduce the risk of becoming a victim.
Officer Stephen Mahler, Hamilton Police Services, will lead this casual, interactive one-hour seminar providing all the information you need to avoid being a target while walking and cycling. Criminals are creatures of opportunity! Learn about actual crime rates, best conditions for safety, how to evaluate a safe route, and how to take action when you are in trouble. Don’t let the fear of crime drive you from the streets. The safest neighbourhood is one with people walking!
When: Tuesday Dec 2nd, 6.30pm
Where: Ryerson Recreation Centre.
Cost: Free! All welcome.
RSVP appreciated by not necessary
This seminar is part of a series of events hosted by Environment Hamilton to engage people in active transportation. Generously funded by EcoAction, Environment Canada
2) Kirkendall Hikes! with Richard Reble
Richard Reble, the Bruce Trail hike leader who took us on a recent Thursday evening walk in the area of the escarpment, is back by popular demand. This new hike will start in neighbouring Strathcona, minutes from your door. You will wind through forests and field, around castles and our Great Lake.
When: Thurs., Dec. 4, 7:00 p.m. (Richard will be there by 6:30)
Where: Parking lot of Dundurn Castle.
Duration: An easy 1.5 – 2 hrs, stopping for folks to catch up on the way!
Please dress accordingly.
An optional pub stop for conversation and refreshments will follow the hike.
