2018 Winter and Spring events

Happy New Year everyone,

Here are the events we have planned for 2018.  We will post any changes or additional details closer to the date.

Feb 4th, Sunday, Carol Harris will be leading a Bruce trail snowshoe hike at Hibou.  With the cold weather and lots of snow, this will likely be a beautiful hike. Meet at 1:15 at the south parking lot (Pump House) at Hibou Conservation Area on Grey Road 15.  Enjoy this 2 hour snowshoe hike along the inland trails.  Contact Carol at carol_harris@icloud.com

April 19th, Thursday, Bob Knapp will be leading an interpretive spring hike. Please check back for details re time and meeting place or changes related to weather.

April 25th, Wednesday, We will have our annual beach clean up of debris. We are pleased with the work volunteers do every spring to help remove the available debris to make the beach more pleasant in the summer.  Meet us at the main beach parking lot at 9:30.  We will work till noon.  Mostly we will need pitch forks and wheel barrows if you can bring them.

May 9th, Wednesday, we will have our annual trail clipping afternoon.  Join us at 1:00 pm at the south parking lot.  Bring clippers and work gloves if you have any.  We will work till about 3:30.

May 31st, Thursday, we will do our annual shoreline cleanup.  This involves the rough shoreline south of the beach and the main beach if it is necessary.   Meet at 9:30 at the main beach parking lot (north lot) and we will work till noon. We will have garbage bags.  Bring work gloves, water and appropriate clothing for weather along the shore.  We mainly seem to pick up old lighters, plastic lids from bottles and other plastics.  It is easier when we do it every year.  Hope you can join us.

Thank you to everyone who helps make Hibou Conservation Area a place to appreciate our natural environment.
