Every day is a great day for a trail, but join us on Saturday, June 1 to celebrate Saskatchewan Trails Day, held in conjunction with International Trails Day. The Saskatchewan Trails Association (STA) is encouraging people to find their path on Saskatchewan Trails Day. This gives everybody an opportunity to celebrate and enjoy the beautiful and diverse trails in our province. In addition to a wonderful time, trails promote healthy living, economic development, tourism, and environmental preservation.
“Escape the indoors, and explore the vast wonders of the Saskatchewan trails,” said STA President David Powell. “Bring all of your family and friend, or even have your own solo adventure on a new trail. While out on your exploration, we encourage you to share your experience and photos with us using #SaskTrailsDay. You can follow us and our experience on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.”
As part of the Saskatchewan Trails Day celebrations, the STA is launching a month-long photo contest. Take lots of photos of your favorite trails, views, or even you and your hiking group and submit them to us through our Instagram account at #SaskTrailsDay. You can enter as often as you like and the best photo, as selected by the STA board of directors, will receive a prize package valued at $200. Don’t miss out, we cannot wait to see all the expeditions you embark on. All photos become property of the STA and will be used to promote your favorite trails. The contest begins on Saskatchewan Trails Day and wraps up on June 30 and is part of the June is Recreation and Parks Month in the province. A decision on the top prize will be made the following week.
Also, don’t forget to check out the Saskatchewan Trails Associations trail directory. The trail directory allows you to learn about new trails to experience, trail locations, difficulty, and length. Don’t know where to go, or unsure of where to start your hiking experience? The trail directory can help you get from point A to point B on your journey to experience nature on the trails. The Saskatchewan Trail Association accepts individual and corporate donations for communities, or to the trail of your choice, to help support trail development and maintenance programs in Saskatchewan. Memberships to become a STA member are also available for as little as $25 per year for an individual. STA members have accesses to trail funding and other resources and can also attend and vote at meetings of members!
