We met Mike three years ago during a very stressful time in our life as we moved from Petawawa to Edmonton.  As a Military family, our time was limited to purchase a home and Mike was there with us day and night until we finalized the purchase.

Explore the Great Outdoors this Edmonton Winter

As temperatures drop, many Edmontonians are tempted to enter a sort of hibernation, abandoning the outdoor activities they love in favour of nights spent in the warmth of home. While the days may be shorter, you can still take advantage of the sunlight and enjoy the many parks, trails and conservation areas that are found across Canada.

"The Canadian landscape is breath-taking all year round, and Canadians should get outside and enjoy the beautiful natural environment no matter what the season," says Mary Desjardins, the executive director of TD Friends of the Environment Foundation (TD FEF). "However, it is important to be mindful of the natural environment when enjoying the great outdoors, especially if we want to protect it for generations to come."

TD FEF recommends these tips to Canadians looking to explore the great outdoors this winter:

• Maintain a zero footprint while outdoors to help keep the environment pristine. Take all garbage with you, and don't disturb the natural environment any more than is necessary.

• Watch your step, and be sure to stay on marked trails. Many nature areas maintain marked trails – complete with guide signs and posts. Staying on marked trails will keep you from getting lost, and ensure you're not venturing onto marshes, protected habitats and other dangers that may be hidden beneath the snow fall.

• Stay hydrated. Be sure to drink plenty of water, especially if you're jogging outdoors during the winter. While you may not sweat as much as you do in the summer, it is important to keep hydrated when you plan to be outdoors for long periods of time.

• Bring a map, guidebook or mobile phone with you. If you are exploring an area for the first time, if the weather worsens, or you become disoriented you can find your way to safety.

TD FEF supports numerous trails and natural areas, helping to ensure that Edmontonians can enjoy the natural beauty of the environment year-round.
