Jane’s Walk Guide Needed

Last year we launched our inaugural Jane’s Walk.  Ranchlands’ resident Cindy van Sprang spent time researching the history of Ranchlands.  The result was a beautiful walk around our eastern parks of approximately 4kms.

We would like to keep hosting a Jane’s Walk in Ranchlands, but we need a resident interested in becoming a guide with the intent of developing the route that Cindy created.  For the 2019 walk, this resident would be a co-guide with Cindy (or a board member) to learn the route and the information presented.

What will you do as Jane’s Walk guide?

  • research new information on Ranchlands’ history, wildlife, flora, geology and any other theme that will enhance our residents knowledge of their neighbourhood
  • develop the route over time to keep it interesting or adapt it to participant feedback
  • lead the walk during the Jane’s Walk weekend (having a friend as a co-guide is also encouraged)
  • work with the Board of Directors to coordinate the planning and advertising of the walk

What skills do you need to be a Jane’s Walk guide?

  • the ability to walk the 4km undulating route on mixed surfaces (trail, grass, sidewalks, gravel)
  • enthusiasm for our community
  • enjoy talking to people
  • ability to work with others

How will the RCA support you?

  • offer training to the guide including relevant training from outside agencies
  • support the walk through all promotional means
