I know. It snowed. Some of us are elated, and we love to rub it in the faces of our friends who are ‘displeased’. And I know that normally we at The Couchiching Conservancy are telling you to get outside and get into nature and enjoy the beauty of the first snow fall… but today I am not going to do that to you. Today, in the spirit of ‘give the people what they want’ I am going to try to entice you to join us at two warm, cozy indoor events!
As we work to protect the Black River Wildlands just east of Washago, I have become aware of how much time I have wasted in a car to get to places I perceived to be pristine escapes.
Weekend hikers and paddlers, your attention please.
I give you two scenarios: Sally and Sid…
There is nothing better to paddle than a river. I find it to be a perfect metaphor for life.
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.
This is just one possibility of sightings and experiences that you could encounter when you attend a Passport to Nature event at one of the 45 properties that The Couchiching Conservancy helps to protect.
It’s around 5:30 pm on Friday and the teams are starting to gather at the cabin. Tents are being pitched, cars parked and tally sheets distributed. It’s nearly time for the Carden Challenge to start.
May is also the month of the Couchiching Conservancy’s annual Carden Challenge, when teams of keen amateur naturalists compete to find as many species as possible over a 24-hour period.
Birding, Walking, Biodiversity and Wilderness. Take part in some of the great upcoming events to connect with nature in our neighbourhood!
Be a part of the Walk Wylie, and learn about one of the key areas we work to protect.
