There are quite a few additions and changes to the list this month. Thanks to those clubs that are adding to your plans for the year and those that are getting corrections back to me. Please look over the list and make sure your walks are correctly listed and let me know if I need to make any changes.
The Evergreen Wanderers' seasonal walk at Nisqually has been moved to March 1st from April 1st, so get out and enjoy it a month earlier.
Our friends from the Surrey Trekkers Volkssport Club had scheduled a walk & picnic in Abbotsford on August 19, 2018. Unfortunately the City requested them to obtain several permits which would have made the walk a significant financial burden to the Club. Therefore, the Club has replaced the originally scheduled event with a walk starting at Peace Arch Park, followed by a picnic in the park. They would welcome their US neighbours to join them. Here are the details for your information.
