Trail Talk: Fireside Chats with Hike NS
Hike Nova Scotia invites you to a new series of virtual fireside chats with people who have interesting hike experiences and stories to share. Join us around the virtual fire for these informal chats to learn more about fascinating people and how they make hiking a part of their lives, often in unique ways or places. There’s a chance for the audience to ask questions of our guests too. These experiences are free for Hike NS members or $20 for non-members (who then receive a free one-year membership).
: Jonathan is the host of our Trail Talk: Fireside Chats. He sits on the board of Hike NS as Vice President and is a former journalist. He is currently the Trail and Open Spaces Coordinator with the Municipality of the District of Digby.
: Assisting Jonathan on the technical side of things, Janet is the Executive Director of Hike NS and life-long hiker.
