If you’re anything like me you know the feeling of sheer excitement when the leaves begin to change colour in fall. As trees begin to brace for… dare I say, for those less excited, winter, our favourite natural spaces in Ontario transform into colourful works of art.
Just imagine the opportunity to embark on an environmental expedition that immerses you in the depths of wilderness, where you get to learn, explore, and engage with nature alongside like-minded people. A whirlwind “safari,” if you will, for 24 hours observing species at risk, breathing in fresh air, and taking immediate conservation action all while having fun.
Passport to Nature offers a window on the wilds of the region through a year-round series of free events that include guided hikes, canoe trips, photography and astronomy outings and much more.
This year the Annual General Meeting is to be held on February 4th from 1:30-4:30 pm at Hawk Ridge Golf and Country Club.

The Annual General Meeting and 20th anniversary was featured in the Orillia Packet & Times.
