Natural Environment & Trails

Being active in nature is a great way to stay healthy and connected to your community. With beautiful trails, forests, gardens, lakes, rivers and wetlands, we protect our environment, and encourage people to enjoy the natural world.

The CRCC engages with local environment and trail groups to promote their programs and encourage everyone to take part.
