The spirit of giving and a connection to nature took a major role in this couple’s wedding.
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!
During one of the very few really hot days we had this summer, a lady asked me how birds keep cool during those conditions.
They have a number of methods of beating the heat.
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.
We are blessed by Woodpeckers! Worldwide, there are 210 different species, but in Ontario we only have 9 of them.
Using the camera on your smartphone or the automatic settings of your camera will provide you with a satisfactory but ordinary image. Here are some tips that will help you take extraordinary images of wildflowers.
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.
After a minute or so listening and watching, the noise stopped and from out of the undergrowth, a male Eastern Towhee flew up to the rail fence, tipped his head up and began to sing his heart out….”drink your tea…drink your tea!”
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.
We are pleased to announce that the Conservancy will be working on a special project with the Orillia Museum (OMAH).
