Giving Thanks For A Rainbow of Colour

October 9 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Enjoy being outdoors for an afternoon, walking in nature, and viewing the spectacular colours of autumn over the Thanksgiving weekend. Come and explore our new nature centre on Saturday, October 9 from 1:00 – 4:00 pm. The nature centre is located in Simcoe County in the Township of Ramara, just east of Orillia, Ontario.

This area will be ablaze with colour. Join us for a foliage frolic between 2:00 and 3:00. Bob Bowles, award-winning author, photographer and Master Naturalist will teach us about the biology of trees, why the leaves change colour and how trees contribute to our well being and help the earth. We will learn about the importance of trees and wetlands in combating climate change.

Come and spend the afternoon in the company of majestic trees, spectacular colours and fellow autumn lovers. Let’s give thanks to our friends, the trees. We’ll have a bonfire, so bring something to roast and toast. We’ll also have some fun games.

All Covid-19 protocols outlined in the Ontario Roadmap to Reopen. will be followed and observed.

Therefore plan ahead and register for the afternoon visit and workshop. You can contact us at to confirm your spot. All participants must be registered for
