Nature Centre Grand Re-Opening – Saturday, June 24 at 10:00 a.m.

Canada Day Celebrations – Less than two weeks away!

·        A full day of family fun to celebrate Canada’s 150th anniversary of Confederation – the day starts with a pancake breakfast, then a colourful parade followed by a flag raising ceremony and cupcakes.  Activities continue throughout the afternoon and into the evening with live music, children’s programs, face-painting, and a cabaret.
