Thank You Volunteers

IMG_2637Dear Volunteers,

We are so grateful for your assistance with this project!

IMG_2635Thanks to about 15 volunteers who came together May 17th, the Hibou Beach area is once again improved.  Mounds of sawdust and wood debris was left behind in Georgian Bay from a sawmill that apparently was operational in the Paynters Bay area many years ago.

It is definitely not all gone.  This is the second year that volunteers gathered to use rakes, pitch forks and wheelbarrows to move the debris back and away from the shore.  Staff from the Grey Sauble Conservation Authority then take responsibility for its removal using a tractor and lift.IMG_2632

This was the second volunteer day.  Earlier in May volunteers came together to do trail clipping.  Sometime in the summer, we will ask from more volunteers to join us in building more Boardwalks for installation on the wetland trails.

IMG_2633On this website,  there is a place where you can insert your email address.  Once validated through email, you will receive an email whenever anyone writes a blog.  If you are not already signed up, that would be the best way to learn about other volunteer opportunities and news about Hibou.

Maybe we will see you out on the trails or at the beach or along the Hibou shoreline soon.

Thank you again for your help.

Friends of Hibou
