The route includes unpaved trails and sandy beaches, which would be challenging for scooters and wheelchairs.
Participants are encouraged to wear boots suitable for soggy terrain, as some flooding is evident on the island. We will change the route to avoid the floodwater, but there may be some wet and muddy spots to cross.
This year's walk on Petrie Island will focus on the turtles living here and the work being done to protect turtle habitat on the island and in the surrounding wetlands. We'll be viewing basking turtles and turtle nesting sites.
