Discover Calgary’s Best Walks with author Lori Beattie Thursday, April 20, 2017 7:00 pm – 8:00 pm Join Lori Beattie, author of Calgary’s Best Walks, for a visual presentation on the very best walks in Calgary. Calgary is a walking city! Fresh, crisp air, big blue skies, nature tucked into all quadrants, hidden stairways, over 500 km of paved pathways and wonderful independent cafe’s where you can stop and recharge. I think the best way to celebrate Canada’s birthday is to introduce Calgarians to their wonderful city, to help them meet their neighbours, to help them experience the pleasure, the perspective, that comes from taking a walk. Learn more about Lori’s Walk 150 initiative to celebrate Canada’s 150th birthday and her partnership with Friends of Fish Creek to offer the “Good Grief!: Walking through Grief and Loss” walking program coming to Fish Creek Provincial Park in May.
