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!!!!!
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.
If you are interested in volunteering in any of the things we talk about in the newsletter, please let me know. firstname.lastname@example.org
Want to know more about things we have done? Go to our website www.friendsofhibou.com and check out the project photos.
Happy New Year
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.

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!!
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.
The Friends of Hibou hope you enjoyed a loving and peaceful holiday season. We wish you enough of all you hope for in 2019. May you experience peace, love and fun. Thank you for your support of the environment by helping us care for this natural treasure close to Owen Sound.
