We had a great response to the last issue's poll asking for readers' favourite winter activities. About 5% hope for deep snows to build snow forts and other sculptures, while close to 10% want to find a rink for skating. Another 18% look forward to cross-country skiing, and 15% prefer to skip outdoor activities and curl up at home by the fire with a warm beverage.
However, for 52.5%, walking snowy trails is your favourite activity, and why not? No special equipment is needed (save for boots and warm clothes), the benefits are immense, and there is so much beautiful scenery to experience in our natural spaces. We're pleased to offer our Maple Lane, Grand Allée, Deer Run, Springbank and Neuman Trails free for the public from sunrise to sunset every day of the year. For more information about these trails, please visit raresites.org/trails/

What "swag" would you like to pick up at our table at community events?
