Celebrating and Preserving Our Trail Development
A time capsule was buried at the Lake of the Woods Discovery Centre on October 19, 2017 to celebrate and preserve trail development. Kenora was one of five gateway communities selected to take part in the Heritage 150 Time Capsule project with the Trans Canada Trail Ontario (TCTO). The project is in celebration of Canada 150, Kenora’s partnership with TCTO and the successes and achievements of trail development over the last 25 years. Kenora was selected for its significant environmental and cultural heritage features – the gateway from the west and to the west. The burial location was chosen to be near the Trans Canada Trail, where the Path of the Paddle and the Great lake of the Woods Trail meet at the Migizi Trail . Representatives from the City of Kenora, Trans Canada Trail Ontario and Kenora Urban Trail Committee took part in the celebration. The capsule was filled with a number of special items, including a The Great Trail t-shirt, Path of the Paddle opening ceremony article, Canada 150, Scotiabank Hockey Day in Canada 2017, and Canada Summer Games rowing event items, and other City swag.
