  • Friday, February 6, 2015, 7:00 p.m. – Sustainable Cobourg, 739 D’Arcy St., Cobourg.
    Speaker: Dr. John Stone, Executive Director (Climate Change) for the Meteorological Service of Canada at Environment Canada.
    Topic: Climate Change.
  • 2015: The Year of the Moraine. Storm Coalition would like you to know about some upcoming events aimed at generating interest in the preservation of the Oak Ridges Moraine. To find out more please visit their website here.
  • From David Bree, Sr. Natural Heritage Education Leader, Presqu’ile Provincial Park. Snowy Owls are present again in the park, having showed up on Nov 9th.  They mostly hang around Beach 3 to Gull and High Bluff islands and eat ducks they catch or scavenge. If the wind is blowing it can be cold out on the point but the water level is low enough it was possible to walk to Gul Island with just rubber boots (I recommend insulated ones!). As always though the conditions can change out there quickly and it may have gotten too slippery to walk out there with this freeze-up. Be cautious if you go!
  • Saturday, February 14, 2015: - The Friends of Presqu’ile Provincial Park are sponsoring the annual Soup Hike. A walk followed by a slide talk and a bowl of soup in the maintenance building (ambience lacking but company good). This costs $5/person and $8/family which includes entry to the park and books up quickly. If you are interested call 613-475-1688 ext2 and leave a message to book a spot. Volunteer Tone Careless will get back to you with details.
