Below, the route for the two-day Water Walk from Cedar Point to the Waverley Uplands. It may change because, as Vicki Monague of Beausoleil First Nation advises, “This is a ceremonial walk that has a life of its own.”
The walk is to protect the pure water that flows underground, water that has been scientifically tested to be on par with ancient Arctic ice.
