Amabel Tract – click for full size image

This is the same site where we recently held the Bruce County Forests 80th anniversary celebration, but because we were too busy eating cake, we didn’t have an official tour. A mature pine plantation with great regen, and a sugar maple dominant hardwood stand that was recently harvested with a mechanized processor.  There are also wetlands on the property that we can visit, or hike through crown land to other sections of the Amabel Tract.  Please join us, rain or shine.

AGM Countdown: 2 weeks

Our Annual General Meeting will take place on Saturday, February 24th starting at 10AM (doors open 9:30). We will begin with an interesting and enlightening presentation by Glenn Trivett, an Ojibway knowledge keeper and medicine man and is a member of the Odawa Midewiwin medicine society.  Glenn has traveled extensively throughout Ontario in initiatives related to Indigenous youth empowerment and healthy relationships.  Glenn has learned about Indigenous history from elders, anthropologists and his spiritual leader in Wikwemikong.  His unique presentation style and perspective leaves those he touches with a much stronger understanding of the issues and hope for the future.  Glenn currently works at M’Wikwedong Native Cultural Resource Centre as their Cultural Coordinator.
