The initial rush for registration has passed by, as has February. Now as the snow has almost disappeared it’s time to take another look at other interesting events that still have a bit of room left to register for.

To find out a bit about the leaders of the events simply click on their names on the “Schedule of Events” page or on the schedule while you are considering registering for an event. You will find some of the most qualified and knowledgeable people in respect to the event they are leading. If you want to learn more about any given topic in nature these are the folks to ask. When you go on any hike they will be more than happy to answer any of your questions about nature. It’s a terrific way to learn as you also get to physically participate and feel and see nature in the beautiful areas of Bruce or Grey County.

The varied types of events in the festival include birds, trees, wildflowers, butterflies, amphibians, photography (both learning and participating), history of the areas, and natural ways of how nature provided for our ancestors. Every one of the events has a LOT to offer. I wish I could spread myself thinner and participate in them all but I’m sure over the coming years I will do just that. This festival is a terrific opportunity to fully appreciate the beauty nature has to offer and learn from some of the most knowledgeable leaders, both old and new!

Take a look over the events and fill up your weekends. It’s a once a year opportunity to get out, enjoy nature, learn more about nature and meet new friends with similar interests. There are challenging hikes, very relaxed hikes and all hikes and other events will enhance your knowledge of the natural world around you.

I’m booked solid for both weekends and looking forward to each and every early morning 🙂 Come out and join in the fun!!!
