Cross-Country Skiing Pilot Project at Dan Patterson Conservation Area
For immediate release
St. Thomas – This pilot project was made possible through a partnership between the Kettle Creek Conservation Authority (KCCA) and the Elgin St. Thomas Healthy Kids Community Challenge.
“KCCA is excited to be part of this pilot project, because it will give watershed residents not only an opportunity to get active, but to explore nature close to home,” says Luiza Moczarski, public relations supervisor for Kettle Creek Conservation Authority.
Elgin-St. Thomas is one of 45 communities across Ontario taking part in The Healthy Kids Community Challenge. The Healthy Kids Community Challenge unites communities with a common goal: promoting children’s health through physical activity and healthy eating.
Cross-Country Skiers will be allowed to enter the property until March 31, 2016 without a permit provided they follow the posted rules and regulations such as entering only between dawn and dusk and staying on the designated trail.
Dan Patterson Conservation Area is located at 44014 Mapleton Line, north of St. Thomas.
