Treks and Travels
Monthly, 7:30-9:00 p.m., at Rosedale Community Hall, 901-11 Avenue NW (free street parking is available in the evenings). Free for members, $5 charge at the door for non-members. Guests are welcome. No registration required.

Come for an evening of discovery and discussion in an informal and intimate setting! CALL members are an adventurous group and are interested in hearing about active and interesting global pursuits. Each month we will have an interactive presentation from a different presenter.

We are looking for more CALL adventurers–CALL members and others– to come forward to stimulate and inspire us with accounts of their treks and travels. If you are interested and would like to know more, please contact Janet Samber or Richard King via e-mail at travel@calgarylifelonglearners.ca.

    Bicycling the Mississippi River Trail -Rolf Stengl

    Ride along with Rolf as he documents his 9 week journey along the Mississippi River Trail from New Orleans to Minneapolis and on to Saskatchewan. He will share his experiences as he bicycles the road less travelled through rural America, meeting local residents, experiencing the delights of Memphis music, small towns, and river life. From Bourbon Street to the Moose Jaw moose, this is an adventure that celebrates the land that Rolf passed through and the people he met.
