Cross-Canada hikers pass through the Kawarthas – from My

Sonya Richmond and Sean Morton passed through Peterborough and the Kawarthas this weekend during a four-year journey on the 24,000km Great Trail

An epic journey across the country brought a pair of nature adventurists through Peterborough and the Kawarthas this weekend.

“We are hiking the longest trail in the world to encourage people of all ages, cultural backgrounds, races, abilities, genders, orientations, and identities to re-connect with nature through birding and Citizen Science,” says Dr. Sonya Richmond, conservation GIS analyst with Bird Studies Canada, who stopped in Peterborough Saturday (June 13) with partner Sean Morton.
