LAUNCH OF THE GREAT TRAIL TREA­SURE HUNT

Canadian Geographic - - YOUR SOCIETY - —A.P.

With the help of celebri­ties such as RCGS Ex­plorer-in-res­i­dence Ge­orge Kourou­nis ( ABOVE), 100 trea­sure boxes were hid­den along The Great Trail be­tween Aug. 26 and Oct. 31 for The Great Trail Trea­sure Hunt, a cel­e­bra­tion mark­ing the one-year an­niver­sary of the trail’s full con­nec­tion across Canada. Dur­ing the hunt, which is a part­ner­ship be­tween the Trans Canada Trail and the RCGS, lo­ca­tion clues were re­leased to help hun­dreds of seek­ers, and the first per­son to find each box re­ceived a $100 Moun­tain Equip­ment Co-op gift card and a one-year sub­scrip­tion to Cana­dian Geo­graphic. Weekly draw prizes in­cluded Nikon cam­eras, SPOT GPS de­vices and KEEN gift cards, and a grand prize draw for a One Ocean Ex­pe­di­tions trip to Labrador and the Torn­gat Moun­tains was an­nounced at the RCGS’S Col­lege of Fel­lows An­nual Din­ner on Nov. 1.
