Fall volunteer weekend, Oct. 15/16

Greetings everyone!

Once again, volunteers from the local area, and various parts of Ontario, will be coming here to do various nature park projects on the weekend of October 15/16. We hope that you will be able to join us!

Projects will be quite dependent upon the weather, number of people, etc., but may include: bridge construction, fencing the slider pond, trail clearing, turtle enclosure retaining wall construction, continuing construction of the main pond viewing/teaching platform, firewood stacking, tree transplanting, and lots of other fun stuff. There are some indoor projects, too, in case it rains, though if the weather forecast looks really bad we may postpone the event until October 22/23.

We expect to get started fairly early on Saturday, around 9:00, though depending upon driving distances some will arrive later. And you don't have to come for the whole weekend- some people only come for the Saturday, or just Sunday afternoon, etc. We have lots of room for tents, and possibly even a couple of beds available!

Last spring, we again had all of the food for the weekend donated by local restaurants (Subway, Quizno's, A&W, Weber's, King's Buffet) and stores (No Frills), so we hope to be as successful this fall! Donations of food (and anything else) are always welcome!

And, of course, there will be the ever-popular Saturday night pool party, so don't forget your bathing suit!

If you aren't familiar with our plans to convert the property into a conservation education centre focused on Ontario's reptiles, amphibians, and fish, check out http://www.scisnake.com/features/scales.html for some more details and some pictures, including some from previous volunteer weekends.

Please let us know if you are interested in participating, and feel free to pass on the invitation to anyone you think might be interested in helping out!

You have an outstanding good and well structured site. I enjoyed browsing through it fluoxetine 20 mg picture Anonymous at 7:16 AM, February 22, 2007
