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.

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.

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

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.
