Greetings from the Friends of Hibou!
Perhaps Covid-19 Pandemic isolation time is a good time for you to browse through our web site. It could even possibly be a family activity time. You might want to plan some activities at Hibou when this is over in the summer.
We recently posted a new set of photos taken by Tom Hakala. Go to Nature Photos .
Tom’s creative photography shares with us some of winter’s splendor. A great example of making the best of life’s challenges.
We are disappointed that the Pandemic has meant that the Grey Sauble Parks and Trails have been closed. Hopefully all the cancellations and closures will shorten the time this lasts. We had some events planned for this spring. Sadly we are not sure when we will be able to reschedule them. Keep checking. Our committee will have a virtual meeting in April and hope to come up with whatever we can with some degree of certainty.
Being in nature can be an excellent way to de-stress. Nature is a healer. Spend quiet time there.
Friends of Hibou are excited about the new year coming up. We developed a Newsletter which we sent out to a few people. Now it is time to share that information more on our web site, Face Book Page and LinkedIn! Certainly we will be sending out more information over the next few months as our plans solidify. Are you curious? You have to read about it in the Newsletter. Click on the link below to read it.

We are springing into action and getting the trails ready for hikers. Let us know if you can join us for Trail Clipping and cleanup on Wednesday morning May 29th.
Join us at 9:30 am at the Water Works Parking Lot. Bring clippers, work gloves and drinking water. We will work till about noon.

Time to get working on the Sandy Beach Clean-up at Hibou again. It does make a difference. Unfortunately last year was put off due to weather.
When: Thursday April 25th 9:30 till noon or so
Where: meet us at the beach parking lot.
What to bring: Pitchforks and Wheel barrows are most useful. Rakes help you pull the debris up and onto the shore as much is still in the water this year. You will need rubber boots as often you will be at the water’s edge. Work gloves can also be helpful. Bring water and a snack.
If heavy rain, we will postpone. We will work if only drizzling.
Please let us know if you plan to join us. Your help would be much appreciated.

A wonderful 2 hour snowshoe outing on March 7th, enjoying the fresh air and all the sites and sounds at Hibou!
Six more sleeps until our Snowshoe outing on March 7th at 10:00 am. The weather is looking favourable for a great day at Hibou!
The sun and the -3 degree temperature invited me to Hibou for a hike today! No need for snowshoes today, it’s a well used trail and I was hiking along with my winter boots. Lots of wildlife on the move today too! Happy Trails!!
