Sean and Sonya are passionate about nature, birding and exploring new places. They have left their jobs and sold their house, and in June 2019 they will begin walking across Canada on The Great Trail from Cape Spear, Newfoundland to Victoria, British Columbia. Afterwards, they will continue north from Edmonton, Alberta to Tuktoyaktuk, Northwest Territories.
They are not just looking for adventure – they are walking to connect families and youth to nature through birding and to raise awareness of the importance of the boreal forest. This journey is about connections – people to people, people to nature, past to present, and coast to coast to coast.
