What Does Active Transportation (AT) Look Like in Nova Scotia

Beat The Heat
In the summer the combination of high heat and humidity can
be dangerous for some people. Those most at risk include the
elderly, people with certain chronic conditions (such as heart or
lung problems), people who can’t move or change position by
themselves, infants and preschool children, people who work or
exercise outdoors for a long period of time, and people taking
certain medications, especially those for mental health
conditions. For more infomation on heat and humidity, and tips
on preventing heat-related illnesses, see these resources:

The Trans Canada Trail is pleased to announce that the new  Trans Canada Trail BioKit, the latest addition to Environment Canada’s BioKit program aimed at families with young children. The purpose of the TCT BioKit, developed in collaboration with Environment Canada, is to inform Canadians about the value of local natural areas, to empower them to help  protect these areas through the use and appreciation of the Trail, and increase their
knowledge of biodiversity.

The Trans Canada Trail offers Canadians of all ages an opportunity to experience our great country through a variety of activities, and the BioKit is an innovative means of introducing  young people to the diverse nature of the Trail“,  says Deborah Apps.
