Wild Wise Sooke offers a free interpretive hike

Natural Connection will lead the trek into the woods

Wild Wise Sooke is teaming up with The Natural Connection to offer an opportunity for people who love nature (and those who think they might love nature if they could only get out there) to get out into the great outdoors this weekend.

Ryan LeBlanc, a guide for the local excursion company, will be on hand to lead the wildlife educational hike on Sunday (Feb. 10).

Hikers will meet at the parking lot beside the Sooke Brewing Company at noon and carpool to the Broom Hill hike location.

From there, they will participate in a 6½-hour hike that will trek along a 2½-kilometre trail.

Wild Wise coordinator, Smantha Webb, said that the excursion will be an intermediate level hike and that it will take place, rain, shine or snow. Naturally, participants are asked to dress appropriately for the weather conditions and pay particular attention to their footwear. Hiking boots are recomended.

Anyone not able to make the hike will still have the opportunity to meet after the completion of the hike at the Sooke Brewing Company where they can speak to participants about their adventure.
