We are so excited for the community to explore nature and learn about different species and how to protect the health of your local lakes and beyond! You get to keep your workbook that will give you tips to safely explore nature as you learn about different animals and plants that are found in Hastings Highlands. You will discover what a watershed and the riparian zone are, and see ways you can help nature, all with some fun activities along the way! Become a member of the Hastings Highlands Library – it’s free to check out your Nature Discovery Backpack AND while you are there get a Free Pass to Ontario Provincial Parks for a day of exploring.

The Kick Off Day was met with great enthusiasm from the approximately 70 students and their teachers from the Maynooth Public School.
