The Bruce Trail is 50 years old this year! To help celebrate our 50th Anniversary, the BTC has relayed a ceremonial 50th Anniversary baton along the entire length of the Trail, from Niagara to Tobermory. The baton has been carried by over 550 volunteers along its journey!
In Sydenham Club, the hikers were joined on May 25 by our Federal MP Larry Miller, who presented us with this Certificate of Congratulations to recognize our 50 years of excellent conservation work. Thank you Larry!
May 15 - we received the Baton from Beaver Valley Club, and headed north into Sydenham section. Here, the Baton crosses the Rocklyn Creek bridge.
On May 27, the baton was passed from Sydemham Club to Peninsula Club, in Wiarton.
On June 10, the baton arrived at the northern terminus cairn in Tobermory, marking the 50th Anniversary of the official opening of the Bruce Trail. Hundreds of supporters then joined in with a special outdoor 50th Anniversary Celebration followed by lunch, hikes and more!
All volunteers who carried the baton for at least 2 km have received this special new badge.
