About

Learn what you were not taught in school with a First Nations guide, while taking a relaxing walk amongst the beautiful colours of the Oakville Trail system along the inner west side of Sixteen Mile Creek. Your guide, Stephen Paquette, is of the Ojibway (Anishninabe) Nation, whose people were the traditional stewards of the lands on which Oakville sits. Explore your trails, explore your history, explore your spirit. Children must be accompanied by an adult. Limited spots. Pre-registration is required. Masks must be worn at all times during the walk.
