Fundraising for Trails

Hike Nova Scotia’s Fundraising for Trails online discussions, on March 7 and 8, 2023, are for those who volunteer or work to build, maintain and/or fundraise for hiking trails. Going beyond government grants, Janet Barlow of Hike NS will share some key trends in fundraising, strategies to consider and some neat, practical ideas to get your trail fundraising on track. We’ll discuss and learn from one another as participants share their experiences in fundraising as well. 

Note: This is a live webinar only; there will be no recording available afterward.

Janet Barlow is the Executive Director of Hike Nova Scotia. She has worked for 25 years with a variety of Nova Scotian non-profits in project management, policy development, outdoor recreation, hiking and trails, nature education and active transportation. Fundraising has been a fundamental part of her work over the years. She has an honours degree in Biology as well as certificates in Adult Education, Community Economic Development & Fundraising and Improving Non-Profit Governance.
