Friends of BMBCL is working to create a variety of events including guided hikes, speaker series, workshops, stewardship training and more. 

Our guided hikes for those who might want to explore the woods but who would feel more comfortable in a group with others leading the way. If you want to join in, check out the Guided Hikes Calendar below.

Beginning in February 2023, we will launch our new speaker series HRM’s Big Backyard. Click the tab below for more details. 

Stay tuned and visit this page as we grow and plan for 2023.

Interested in Becoming A Hike Leader?

Friends have been leading guided hikes in BMBCL for a few years. Always free and always guided by trained volunteers. Our hikes are increasingly popular, frequently full with a call for different types of hikes for experienced, younger, new Canadians and families. We need additional certified HikeLeaders and are organizing a training opportunity for new leaders this spring, May 2023.  

A two-day commitment sometime in May. Hike training costs will be covered by Friends. In return, we expect you to lead two hikes per year over the next two years. 

If this appeals to you, let us know by emailing More details will be sent to those who express an interest in the training.  Please reply as soon as possible.
