Landscape Photo Tips Spectacular scenery lends itself to great photos. But there are a few things that you, the photographer, need to keep in mind before clicking the shutter button. Start by making sure to explore the landscape around you. Get a feel for your surroundings and scope out everything in sight. Get up before the sun rises and stay out after it sets. These are the times when the light is the best. Don’t settle with what you see in the viewfinder the first time you look into it. Move around, lie down, find a different angle.

SPECIAL FEATURE

You don’t have to be a biologist or possess a master’s degree in forestry to learn about science in the Haliburton Highlands. That’s because the Haliburton Forest is in its third year of offering the Citizen Science program. “One of the most interesting things about Haliburton Forest is that there are a number of relevant and timely research projects underway,” said Emma Horrigan, researcher for U-Links and research coordinator for the Faculty of Forestry at the University of Toronto. “Some of these are tied in with the U of T and the Faculty of Forestry. Most of the outings in the Citizen Science program are tied in to that research.” According to the program’s website, there are over 30 research projects underway at the Haliburton Forest with a number of partners. The Citizen Science program was born from an increasing public interest in learning about and participating in this research. “The way the program works is there are outings offered largely in July and August, when most of the research activities are taking place,” said Horrigan. “The idea is that participants sign up to spend a day alongside research experts, and get an intimate understanding of each project by participating in hands-on activities.” For example, in the Honey Bees in the Forest outing, participants put on a bee suit and get up close and personal with their hives. “You would get to taste some honey and see how the operation runs,” added Horrigan. MyHaliburtonHighlands.com

Science Made Simple

Other research topics have included old-growth forest assessments, small mammal ecology, carbon dynamics and invasive species. The full-day outings are open to all ages, but Horrigan says some are geared towards a more mature audience. So why should visitors check out the Citizen Science program? “From the science perspective, it engages non-scientists in what the scientific process is. Whether you’re from the Highlands or just visiting, it’s useful to know what research is being done in the area.” After all, the Haliburton Highlands’ natural environment is one of its biggest assets. “A lot of this research is underway to help protect and sustainably manage our natural resources. From that perspective, it’s an extremely valuable opportunity for people to gain a better understanding of what’s here in the Highlands.” To register for a future outing call 705-754-2198 or email reservations@ haliburtonforest.com

Fall Splash: Haliburton County Studio Tour Imagine driving along a winding country road, through a magnificent canopy of fall colours as you make your way to one of the many local arts studios. Each year, thousands of visitors to the Haliburton Highlands take advantage of both of these attractions by participating in the Haliburton County Studio Tour. “We are blessed to have world-class talent in the Highlands, and many of those artists are members of the tour,” says Thom Lambert, chair of the 27th annual tour. The 2013 tour featured the work of over 40 artists at 28 studios. “There will be at least 40 artists on this year’s tour, probably more,” says Lambert. “The big difference will be the emergence of some of our younger members.” While the tour is a huge annual boon to these artists, visitors aren’t pressured into making a purchase. There’s lots to see and buy, but there’s also plenty to learn. “We get lots of visitors that may not be shopping, but do want to see how and where the work is produced. Every studio on the tour offers some view of the artistic process through demonstrations, works-in-progress, and the opportunity to speak directly with the artist.” MyHaliburtonHighlands.com

PAGE 23

SPECIAL FEATURE

This year, several of the tour’s younger members will go from being guest artists to having a full studio space. “That means they will have more room for their work, as well as an opportunity for visitors to see how and where their work is produced. That will also open space for other guest artists. People can look forward to some new faces, as well as new studios to visit.” The 2014 tour will be held over two weekends in the fall: Oct. 4-5 and 11-12. Don’t miss your chance to meet our artists, see their studio spaces and discover their incredible works of art.

Whether you’re a history buff or just looking to uncover a few interesting facts, the Haliburton Highlands will enlighten you. Located in downtown Minden, the Minden Hills Cultural Centre’s four-acre property is home to the Agnes Jamieson Gallery, Minden Hills Museum, Nature’s Place and the Minden Hills branch of the Haliburton County Public Library. The Agnes Jamieson Gallery is a public art gallery that offers art exhibitions throughout the year. Its main collection primarily consists of artwork by André Lapine (1866-1952), one of Canada’s foremost artists. The Russian-born Lapine immigrated to Canada from Europe in 1905 and became the most valued illustrator for Brigden’s, a commercial art house in Toronto. In the media he was known as the best illustrator of horses in North America. In downtown Haliburton, the Rails End Gallery & Arts Centre exposes visitors to contemporary art installations and engaging programs. This former railway station was transformed into the Rails End Gallery & Arts in 1979 when the Haliburton Highlands Guild of Fine Arts took it on as a restoration project. Since then, it has become a “welcoming cultural hub” for people of all ages. Live entertainment is often provided during special events and art openings. The past is certainly present in the Haliburton Highlands! PAGE 24

Past Meets Present At Doors Open

The storied history of Haliburton, one of the Haliburton Highlands’ many vibrant communities, will come under the spotlight this fall during the 12th annual Doors Open Ontario. “Doors Open is a wonderful opportunity to learn about and celebrate the rich history of our vibrant community,” said event coordinator Amy Brohm. “This program will feature sites across the Municipality of Dysart et al that people do not often get a chance to see.” Doors Open will also give visitors the rare chance to learn about the dynamic individuals who are part of that history. According to the Doors Open website, North America’s first

Doors Open event was held in the City of Toronto in 2000. In 2002, the Ontario Heritage Trust launched Doors Open Ontario, the first province-wide event of its kind in Canada. Since then, the concept has spread across North America. The Haliburton event is expected to feature 20 sites. Some of the tour’s highlights will include: logging, hunting, tourism and resorts, cottagers, arts and culture, and the local business community. Several sites will even feature local storytellers who will interact with visitors. For more details visit doorsopenontario.on.ca Victoria Street School Circa mid-1920s

2015 Pan Am Games Several world-class athletes will arrive in the Haliburton Highlands next summer for the 2015 Pan Am Games. Don’t miss out on all the fast-paced, whitewater action at the Minden Wild Water Preserve between July 10 and 26. Located on the Gull River in Minden Hills, this 100-acre preserve features rushing waters ideal for these intense canoe/kayak slalom races. Improvements and upgrades will be made to the existing course and waterway, including a new gate system to meet all international federation (ICF) requirements. The Minden Wild Water Preserve is privately owned and operated by Whitewater Ontario for the use of its members.

Understanding the Races

To learn more about this signature event visit toronto2015.org MyHaliburtonHighlands.com

In the canoe event, male and female competito rs will navigate their way down the course through a series of 25 red and green pain ted poles (gates). According to the Games’ website, the coloured poles specify the direc tion in which the paddler must pass through the gate. If they touch the gate, they receive a two-second time penalty; if they miss the gate altogether, they receive a fivesecond time penalty. The combined score of time and penalties determines the finish ing order. Kayakers in the single’s event must navigate 25 gates in the fastest time possible. Time penalties are handed out for gates that are touc hed (two seconds) and missed (50 seconds). The combined score of time and pena lties determines the finishing order.

The Food Hub and gardens are just a taste of what’s in store for the 210-acre property – the site of a former gravel pit. A wide selection of locally grown food can also be found at the Haliburton County Farmers’ Market and Garlic Fest. With a reputation for quality and a welcoming

atmosphere, these annual events bring dozens of vendors together at an outdoor venue. Mark your calendar and get your hands on fresh fruits and vegetables, meats, breads, preserves, garlic and much more! The Haliburton Highlands is also known for its abundance of nature’s gold (maple syrup) and other products with a maple twist. Go for a tour of a maple syrup production facility and indulge in the sweetness of spring. You can even buy a bottle of award-winning wine made with this key Canadian ingredient. A delicious destination awaits you in the Haliburton Highlands!

A Hockey Hotspot Whether it’s played on a frozen pond or in an arena, hockey is a sport that thrives in the Haliburton Highlands. If you’re thinking about getting in the game or would rather watch from the bleachers, here are a couple of tournaments worth checking out. Scotty Morrison Charity Hockey Tournament Former NHL referee and Hockey Hall of Fame member, Scotty Morrison, is a household name in the Haliburton Highlands. And for the past six years, this local legend has hosted a charity hockey tournament for a worthwhile cause. This year’s Scotty Morrison Charity Hockey Tournament featured special guests, exhibition games at A.J. LaRue Arena in Haliburton and other highlights. Proceeds from the tournament benefit local residents. Next year’s event will take place between Feb. 6 and 7. Haliburton County Home Builders’ Association Charity Hockey Tournament The 16th annual Haliburton County Homebuilders’ Association (HCHBA) Charity Hockey Tournament was held over three days in February at the A.J.

Where can you find 30 outdoor rinks, 1,400 players and two full weekends of hockey action? The answer: the Canadian National Pond Hockey Championships. This past January and February, the Haliburton Highlands hosted this event in Haliburton Village for the second year in a row. Teams of players from all over Ontario participated in five games of shinny on Head Lake, with the top 16 in each division moving on to the playoffs. In addition to the fast-paced games, spectators were treated to the premier of There’s Something in the Water?, a documentary about Haliburton’s many connections to the NHL and the rest of the hockey world. This one-hour documentary includes interviews with local hockey stars (past and present), including Matt Duchene, Cody Hodgson, Ron Stackhouse and Bernie Nicholls.

Want to know what it feels like to glide across a snow-covered trail with a team of purebred Siberian huskies leading the way? Then head out to the Haliburton Highlands for the thrill of a lifetime on a guided dog sled tour.

Fit For Life

www.hhhs.ca No matter what your age or fitness level, a healthy lifestyle can be yours in the Haliburton Highlands. Get out on the lake and experience a full-body workout as you give stand up paddle (SUP) boarding a try. Although fairly new to the area, it’s become one of the fastest-growing sports in the world. Best of all, it’s easy to learn after a few lessons. Another good way to stay limber is to go horseback riding. Get led down the trail by an experienced rider and gain a unique perspective of the surrounding environment. Want to work up a sweat indoors? Drop in to a gym, Zumba or spinning class and enjoy the company of others. Just because the snow is falling doesn’t mean you can’t be active. Experience snowshoeing, cross country skiing and even ice climbing! The possibilities are endless! MyHaliburtonHighlands.com
