DISTRIBUTION OF TREES AND DOOR PRIZES Again this year, in collaboration with the Gaspésie Forestry Association and the International Appalachian Trail, nearly 8 tree seedlings of 30 different species will be distributed to participants. In addition, many door prizes will be drawn again this year thanks to a monetary contribution from the City of Gaspé and donations from generous sponsors. AN ECO-RESPONSIBLE EVENT Since the event aims to be eco-responsible, we will ask participants to sort recyclable materials and waste.

Everyone is welcome!
