Nature calls…in South Bruce Peninsula

Free, outdoor family fun day nurtures the love of the outdoors…

Have you ever wondered about the critters that live just under the water’s surface? Would you like to know how to identify different species of plants or birds? Do you know what a wetland is and why is it important to the health of our community? Wiarton and South Bruce Peninsula area residents now have their chance to find out. On Saturday, May 27th, Ducks Unlimited Canada (DUC) and the Bluewater Education Foundation invite you to an action-packed outdoor family fun day from 1:00 to 4:00 p.m. at the Bluewater Outdoor Education Centre (BOEC).

According to Ontario DUC education specialist Stephanie Walker, kids love getting outside and into wetlands to experience nature in a whole new way. However, this event is for more than just the kids. It is also for nature lovers and outdoor enthusiasts of all ages.

Visitors are invited to trek the trails, dip for critters, get their faces painted, take a horse drawn wagon ride, learn all about wildlife, watersheds and wetland conservation from the experts, and so much more.

Area residents, mark your calendars! May 27th is your chance to come celebrate the wonder of wetlands, wildlife and the unique 320-acre Bluewater Outdoor Education Centre.
