Monday Meeting - in support of the Bruce Trail

Monday May 29
WPIRG - SLC 2139

This is a student-run awareness campaign regarding the Bruce Trail,
the Niagara Escarpment, and the Greenbelt of Ontario.

For FootSteps to be a complete success at the University of Waterloo,
I need your help! I'll be holding a meeting at the WPIRG office, on
May 29, at 4pm so that everyone can hopefully
attend. At the meeting, I'll be asking individuals to help me out in
order to continue the awareness campaign in my absence, and to run
booths, put up posters, and try to raise funds. This is a great
opportunity for students willing to participate in a
student-created and student-run environmental program.

If you have any ideas on ways to educate students, or ways to help
raise funds, please email me at Remember, Ayden
and I are walking 850km as an incentive to donate to the BTA (that's
approx. 30-day straight walk).

Thanks everyone!
