Free Family Fun Day, Cancelled

The Friends of Hibou are saddened to announce the cancellation of our planned event –  “Free Family Fun Day” on June 20th, 2020.   We WILL be hosting the event next year on Saturday June 19th, 2021 with a number of educational, nature based activities for the young and young at heart!   Until then, please continue to hike the trails and enjoy the nature around you at Hibou!!   Follow us on Facebook!

Hibou is NOT For Sale

In early April, a For Sale sign was posted by the Altas Real Estate Agency on the north end of Hibou.  Grey Sauble Conservation staff heard of this action through social media.   Staff are working with a lawyer to rectify the situation.    We are please with the quick action of staff to work through this mistake!   Here is the link to the news release from Grey Sauble Conservation.  Thank you to everyone and the Hibou Neighbourhood Watch Program, we appreciate your help in bringing this to our attention!!!!!

Hibou Update

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.

Happy New Year

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.
