Living History Tour concludes in St. John’s after Cross-country Odyssey

After three months of cycling, the self-propelled duo that embodied the RCEN Living History Tour reached St. John’s on August 15th! During their Canadian Odyssey, Dylan White and Garrett Reynolds interviewed over a dozen past and present members of the RCEN, thus recording an important part of the Canadian environmental movement’s history.

Congratulations to Dylan and Garrett, and thanks to everyone who welcomed, fed and/or housed them! View pictures of their journey at

Over the next few months, we’ll be going through the video footage from the Tour to find the best stories, insights and experiences and then we’ll share them with you! Stay tuned…
