Cover of the Passport to Nature bookletThe Third Passport to Nature is Now Available

The long wait is over and it’s finally here! Our extremely successful Passport to Nature and it’s coveted booklet can be found online and around town. With the array of events we have booked this year, it is no wonder there is such a rush to get registered!

Starting in April and running through February 2018, there are seventeen guided events to take part in. Yoga in the Woods, Astronomy, a Shoreline Exploration and a Family Fun Fest are just a few. This program is perfect if you want to learn about the properties The Couchiching Conservancy helps to protect and about birds and wildlife of our region.

All events are free to attend thanks to local businesses who are dedicated to protecting nature and ensuring our community is healthy. So don’t forget to say ‘thanks’ the next time you visit one of these great businesses.

All you have to do is register, as space is limited. 

We hope that you can join us at one of the events!
