Saturday, October 8, is our Sanctuary Stroll & Social. This event is an adults-only evening out hiking the 4.0 km trail, followed by refreshments and mingling. Cost is $15 + gst/members; $17 + gst/non-members. It runs from 7:00 to 10:00 p.m. and may even present us a chance for some nighttime wildlife encounters! Pre-registration is required.
