Saturday May 27: Trail Clipping New Date

Postponed Trail Clipping that was scheduled for Tuesday May 9th. We will plan to do it on Saturday morning May 27 and combine it with the shoreline cleanup.

Due to the excessive wet in the wet land area we decided to postpone the Trail Clipping that was scheduled for Tuesday May 9th.  We will plan to do it on Saturday morning May 27 and combine it with the shoreline cleanup.

Meet us at 9:30am at the first parking lot after the Hibou Entrance when you are coming from Owen Sound.

Bring work gloves and clippers if you have them, water, hat, sun screen and “bug stuff” may be helpful too.   It would be helpful if you let us know if you are coming.  But just showing up is fine too.  Hopefully the sun will be shining.

 

 

May 2017: Hibou Trail Clipping Afternoon

Volunteers can help us improve the trails.

When:  Tuesday May 9/17 at 1:oopm till about 3:30

Where:  Meet us at the first parking lot after the Hibou Entrance coming from Owen Sound.

What to bring:  large branch clippers, work gloves, water and hat etc.

Giving the trails a good clipping in the spring keeps them in good shape for the rest of the year. It would be helpful if you could let us know if you are coming.  But just showing up is fine too.

Our Website: We are feeling really good about enhancements we have made to our web site.  Click here to look around the site.  You may even see your picture on it somewhere.

May 11 at 12:30 Grand Opening of the Hibou Trail Boardwalk

Oct 2013 eIn the Fall of 2014, an enthusiastic group of volunteers built and placed about 200 ft of boardwalk over a wet portion of trail.  That trail had been impassible for a good portion of the year.  Now we will celebrate by officially opening this new boardwalk.

Come and join us Monday May 11 at 12:30pm for a brief opening ceremony located in the north east section of the park.

Park on the road by the beach entrance and head north towards Leith to the trail entrance.  Try to arrive at the Boardwalk for 12:30pm opening which should be very brief. Light refreshments will be served.

Anyone who would like to volunteer for trail work following the opening, bring some clippers or a pruning saw and we’ll be making sure the trails are in good shape.
