Walk for Wildlife 2017
CWF “Walk for Wildlife” is a national campaign that encourages all Canadians to get outside and experience the wildlife and natural spaces that define Canada. The 2017 Walk for Wildlife will take place during National Wildlife Week 2017 (April 9 – 15). Walks will be organized by participating schools across the country Wednesday, April 12th, but everyone is welcome to particpate throughout the week.This year the walk is all about the species we carry with us every day - the loon, polar bear, caribou and beaver – iconic Canadian species that grace our currency and remind us even the smallest steps and contributions can make a difference for Canadian wildlife. All funds raised through your efforts will help support the critical CWF programs. Register your school or take part as an individual.

Access to nature plays a critical role in children’s physical health, cognitive development and emotional well-being—and develops the next generation of environmental and wildlife stewards. The Children & Nature Network 2017 International Conference and Cities & Nature Summit will provide inspiration and actionable strategies for providing children with increased—and equitable—access to nature.
