GO TAKE A HIKE

A group of dedicated hikers have documented hikes in Western Canada for CSPG. In addition to the stunning scenery you are a guided through, each hike has a short discussion of the geological background with annotated photographs of the area. These hikes originally appeared as part of the "Go Take A Hike" series in the CSPG Reservoir in honour of Cindy Riediger. There are 83 hikes that will be compiled and are set to be published in early 2019.

Half of the available hikes have been sponsored! 

Sponsorship of each hike is $500 and includes the following:
1. Your name is listed in print on the hike; anytime we print the book, anytime the PDF is downloaded, and if viewed digitally. 
2. CSPG is making each hike into its own digital format and looking into having this downloadable.
3. A CSPG Foundation Tax Receipt is available to individuals who request one. 
4. As sponsor, you have the first right of refusal to be the overseer of the digital version of this hike.
