Thank you for supporting the stewardship of over 67 sq/km and 90 km of public trail that is the Meewasin Valley! In the past few months, we’ve seen an increased demand for outdoor infrastructure to help support both the mental and physical health of our community. Although this time has held many uncertainties and adaptations, Meewasin’s commitment to educating youth, enhancing community spaces, and increasing quality of life for visitors and residents of Saskatoon and area has remained unchanged.
Million Steps for Mental Health
During the pandemic, Frances has recognized the essential part that Meewasin has played in her own mental health, and aims to give back by raising funds for both Meewasin & the Canadian Mental Health Association, Saskatoon. Her goal for the pandemic year is to hit 1 MILLION steps on the Meewasin Trail by March 31, 2021!
She wants to fundraise 1¢ per step for organizations that support the mental health of the Saskatoon community and for you get involved by donating and tracking your own activity goals by using #MillionStepsforMentalhealth
In celebration of its 40th year, Meewasin is initiating a capital project to improve the trail system, increase education and interactive experiences and enhance natural areas within the river valley conservation zone. This is the first phase in a long-term plan to rejuvenate this iconic natural landscape that is a jewel for our province.
The funds raised through this campaign will cover the cost of upgrading three trail sections, building a new greenhouse and seed bank, and improving education and programming opportunities.
We invite you to contribute to our goal of maintaining a bright and vibrant river valley corridor for future generations.
