This is a short hike to stretch the legs on a Sunday! We will then beat the wintery weather this Spring by touring the Muttart Conservatory and their feature display: Candycopia (March 10 April 15, 2018) Spring is in the air and full of tulips, daffodils and hyacinths. Surround yourself in a delightful display of colour and fragrance that are sure to stimulate your senses!

Please keep an eye on your emails and the weather forecast before the event, in case of any weather-related issues. Ultimately if it's puking snow or raining outside we can just head straight in to the pyramids in Muttart Conservatory.

We will meet at the parking lot for the Muttart Conservatory (accessed off 96a Street) at 12 noon for a 12:10 departure.
Look for Mark with a blue EOC cap and standing by a grey Toyota Matrix.

We'll then walk south into Mill Creek Ravine for approx one hour, then turn around and return (probably by a different trail) to the start point.
There are quite a few trails in MIll Creek Ravine, I'm not going to specify a specific route - we will just do some exploring for about an hour out, and an hour back before going into Muttart Conservatory for our tour.

The cost of admission to Muttart Conservatory Pyramids is $12.50 (pay at facility when we enter). Click here for Muttart Conservatory information
