Give the People What they Want

I know. It snowed. Some of us are elated, and we love to rub it in the faces of our friends who are ‘displeased’. And I know that normally we at The Couchiching Conservancy are telling you to get outside and get into nature and enjoy the beauty of the first snow fall… but today I am not going to do that to you. Today, in the spirit of ‘give the people what they want’ I am going to try to entice you to join us at two warm, cozy indoor events!

Leave it to Nature: Lessons on Fall colours

The T.C. Agnew Property: Grateful for Nature Reserves

It is hard to fathom protecting our favourite wild places all on our own. There is so much to know, so much money needed, so much expertise required. With The Couchiching Conservancy, protecting nature for future generations is possible.
