“What a tremendous Summit!” – Janet Barlow, Executive Director, Hike Nova Scotia (May 3, 2016)
“On behalf of Hike Nova Scotia and the Hiking Summit organizing committee, I would like to thank you for being part of the 2016 Hiking Summit. It’s official: it was a resounding success and you were part it! Hike NS is grateful to have had top notch co-hosts in organizing the Summit: the Digby Area Recreation Commission and the Fundy Erratics hiking group. We also thank the NS Department of Communities, Culture and Heritage for its support.
We had a total of 175 people at the Summit – our biggest turn-out yet! The silent auction – a first for Hike NS – raised about $3,000. Thank you to those who participated for your generosity in bidding for items. We also thank the generous businesses, organizations and individuals who donated items to the auction. To view photos from the Summit, please view Hike NS’s Twitter and Facebook accounts as well as the Fundy Erratics Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/groups/169282586582217/.

Attached are the notes from the Future of Hiking in Nova Scotia – An Interactive Discussion session, facilitated by Steven Rolls. By special request, also attached are recipes for some of the gluten-free and vegan food at the Summit, provided courtesy of Anna-Marie MacKenzie Kelly. The folks in Digby are happy to welcome you back to the Digby area this summer and fall to experience the trails. We can’t wait for the 2017 Hiking Summit in Tatamagouche. Our co-host will be the Cobequid Eco-Trails Society. We’ll be celebrating Hike Nova Scotia’s tenth anniversary next year, so we hope to see you all there to help us mark this special occasion!” ~Janet, Janet Barlow, Executive Director, Hike Nova Scotia (June 12, 2016)
