We have people are setting up displays of their nature items. There will be interesting things for you to see such as specimen collections, nature artifacts, and art.  There’s still time to reserve a free table. Let us know and we’ll have one set aside for you.

In addition to the individual display tables we will have a couple of other dedicated tables.

One will feature books that will be free for the taking. If you, like many of us have extra copies of field guides, nature art books and such, bring them on the 27th and add them to the table.

The other interesting table is called Nature Nuggets. Do you have a special leaf or rock or skull or piece of driftwood that looks like your cousin? The Nature Nugget table is the place to show it off.  Hmmmmm…what could that be? What are you going to bring? Something we hope. Feel free to bring an item that you can’t identify and one or more of our expert naturalists will try to identify it.

One More Thing:

Headwaters Nature is once again showing ourselves off at the Orangeville Lions Home & Garden Show at the ‘Ag Centre’ out on #5 Sideroad of Mono from Saturday, April 6, 2023 – 9:00 A.M. to 5:00 P.M., and Sunday, April 7, 2023 – 10:00 A.M. to 4:00 P.M.

We need volunteers to work together or along to be the greeters and enticers to show off our passions for the natural world.  You don’t need to any sort of expert — just a friendly and engaging person.  If this were to be your first time doing this, we’d pair you with someone who as done this volunteering before. We also need to update our poster board, the old pre-pandemic version of which is shown below.

If you have photos or posters or other items that could replace any or all of the items on this old board, please bring them to the N3 Nature Nerds meeting, or send them to info@onheadwatersnature.ca
