Join us in Recycling by Feeding Your Food Scraps to the Pigs!

Recently, my family signed up to give our food scraps to a pig farmer. The pigs eat ANYTHING that you give them, even bacon.  This is a great way to reduce waste.  It's also much better for the environment than sending your leftovers to landfills.  Join our effort to stop climate change and while doing that, help out a local farmer!  - Liam

Responsible Hiking

We have been hiking on the beautiful Cabot trail in Cape Breton and we have read many signs about responsible hiking.  Do you know the "Leave No Trace" principles?  In a nutshell, you should leave the trail like you found it and, if anything, take out more trash than you brought into nature.  Or as some would say, "take only pictures home with you and leave only your footsteps behind when you leave."  Not a bad rule to follow as you enjoy vacation!  -Liam
