Description

Get together with TAG in creating an international destination greenway that will promote vibrant communities

Toronto - Algonquin Greenway, or TAG for short, is a sustainable tourism route in development between Toronto and Algonquin Park. The Canadian Canoe Museum's new location will be right on the TAG route, so it's an inspired venue for our inaugural regional meetup.
TAG incorporates established European Greenway concepts of heritage/ community/ and ecology trails, while embracing active mobility. Overlaying this, the project is a catalyst for new enterprise. Cannington, Lakefield, Lindsay and Haliburton are already TAG aware and eager to meet up with their regional counterparts. We invite participation from the greater Peterborough area to bring TAG's potential to life in our communities.

About this Event

The evening will showcase an innovative local project within its global context. The format invites engagement that will propel TAG to the next level. All are welcome - from interests as diverse as: history, nature, arts and culture, active mobility and recreation, tourism and economic development, education and advocacy. The TAG Coordinator will present the basics. After a break for light refreshments, the Haliburton based TAG founding committee will encourage visioning / planning the next phase.
This is an important get-together leading up to TAG Summit 2019, November 3 + 4 at Sir Sam's Ski & Ride, Eagle Lake in Haliburton Highlands.

About Toronto - Algonquin Greenway "TAG"

TAG's motto is "Slow Travel, Local Flavours"
People travelling by bike, hike or paddle, stop to savour a sense of place and engage with communities in life affirming ways. TAG is a series of parks, paths and excursions we have curated to invite discovery of Ontario's scenery, heritage and hospitality.
As the communities along the TAG route become aware, engaged and active - we can predict what benefits will unfold. We've reviewed case studies from around the world and are ready to apply successful models here.

About the TAG Team

Toronto - Algonquin Greenway (TAG) is essentially a volunteer initiative, receiving only modest project grants since it was first imagined in 2013.
Pamela Marsales is the TAG Coordinator.
TAG Committee Members are: Ute Wright (Chair), Tammy Rea, Jewelle Schiedel-Webb, Kate Butler, Shawn Chevalier and Colby Marcellus (on leave). TAG is incorporated as part of the Haliburton County Community Cooperative. TAG's canoe route was designed and tested by Kevin Callan.

Summary

Join us at Canadian Canoe Museum on Tuesday June 11, from 5 to 7:30 for a FREE Toronto - Algonquin Greenway "TAG" intro and regional planning meetup. Meet our Haliburton based TAG team.

Interested parties from regional TAG towns will meet each other . . . learn, and explore actions to create an international destination greenway with vibrant, prosperous towns.
I hope to see you there. / Pamela ~ TAG Coordinator
