April 25, 2019 Hibou Beach Clean-up

Happy Spring!  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.

Snowshoe With Us

On Thursday, March 7th at 10:00 am!!  Meet us at the Water Works Parking Lot located at the southend of HIBOU (on your right if you are driving from Owen Sound).  We will hike different trails throughout HIBOU and along the shore.  Length of our adventure will be 2 – 2.5 hours (5 to 6 km).  If there is not much snow, we will hike it without snowshoes.  IMG_1892

Thank You Jake

On Saturday Nov 17 2018, Jake Doherty, one of the founding  members of Friends of Hibou passed away in Ottawa.  It is with sadness and appreciation that we reflect on his enthusiastic support of this group.  Jake  lived along the shore just south of Hibou Conservation Area and walked the trails and shoreline regularly.  He valued nature and the outdoors  and brought a friendly spirit to the work we were doing there.  The picture was taken in 2015 during one of our shoreline  clean-up days.  Thank you Jake for all that you have given to our community over the years.
