Giveaway! River Valley Alliance Swag

Did you know: The Edmonton area is home to the longest connected river valley pedestrian trail in North America—and it’s got a new name! This month the River Valley Alliance unveiled the new trail name as Amisko Wacîw Mêskanaw (ahmsk-wahCHEE oh MESS-kah-now or msk-wahCHEE oh MESS-kah-now) or Beaver Hill Road. I partnered with the River Valley Alliance to spread the word about the new name (read the caption). 75 km of the 100 km connected trail is completed in this multi-generational project that connects Devon in the south west all the way up to Fort Saskatchewan in the north east, through Edmonton (and a total of six regions in the area) along the North Saskatchewan River! 💛

To celebrate the name unveiling, in this week’s email newsletter I gave away a River Valley Alliance swag box to subscribers. 

I regularly run newsletter-exclusive giveaways. It’s free to subscribe!
