Our annual Members’ BBQ takes place


at Grey Sauble Aboretum 237897 Inglis Falls Rd (click for map)

9AM-1PM (optional) Bus Excursion    1PM-3PM Lunch at Aboretum Picnic Pavillion

It’s the same great meal and social gathering you have come to enjoy but this year we have switched things up to include a bus excursion to local points of woodland interest instead of a guest presented or guided hike as in past years. Best of all, there is no additional charge to come on the bus trip–so hop aboard and enjoy!

Bus departs from location above at 9AM sharp and includes stops at:

  • STOP 1: Denny’s Dam, Southampton: reforesting old fields, invasive species and managing forests with multiple interests
  • STOP 2: Horning’s managed forest, Arkwright – a very well managed upland hardwood forest with financial records dating back 50 years
  • stop 3: West Rocks, Owen Sound –  Emerald Ash Borer control, parasitoid wasp release area

Bus returns by approx 1PM, followed by BBQ lunch and of course dessert treats 🙂
