Summer plans, etc.

A few things I wanted to mention briefly:

The Eastern Canada Tour for summer 2005 has now officially been cancelled as our funding did not come through. We are still planning our joint effort with CARCNET to do a cross-Canada tour and look forward to getting back into writing funding and sponsorship proposals in the fall after the busy summer season is behind us. And it is going to be a busy summer! Check out the Upcoming Events page for details of where we'll be, and that's just the events that are open to the public- most of our events are private! Our northeastern Ontario tour in July looks like it will now be 18 days long, with ~35 shows from North Bay and Sudbury to Timmins, and new for this year- Pukaskwa National Park.

Good thing we've got three full-time staff this summer to help out- Christa, Crystal, and Dan (yes, he's back for another year!). Watch for their staff profiles to be posted this week.

Volunteer weekend pictures are now up on our Flickr gallery; currently they're in the most recent shots shown on the right side of our home page, but soon they'll be bumped out. Click on the More of Jeff's Photos link if you want to see them- they are titled Spring '05 Volunteer Weekend...

I was in a competitive birdathon event last weekend, the Carden Challenge. Our team didn't win, but we had a lot of fun, and combined the eight teams raised $10000 for the Couchiching Conservancy's campaign to purchase the 1600 acre Windmill Ranch property on the Carden Alvar. They are now only $5000 away from the $110K target, and we're hoping to get them closer on Canada Day. At our display in Orillia on Friday, July 1st, we'll be taking pictures of people with a snake for a donation, with the proceeds going to the Windmill Ranch campaign. We've done this a few times in the past with this amazing conservation organization, and so far we have raised nearly $2000 for this campaign through these photos. So come out to the Canada Day display and get your picture done!
