In March, we’re planning to partner with local business organizations to host workshops on media relations and advertising. We want to help you make the most of your marketing budget and help you get your message out. So stay tuned! As your community newspaper, we try to include as much information about local events, people and organizations as we can. But we can’t do that without you! Please send information to editor@ We publish every two weeks and our deadlines are 10 days before we hit the streets. We’ll do our best to include your “news” in the paper, but our paid advertising dictates how much space we have for editorial. Please support our advertisers and let them now you read about them in The Kawartha Promoter.

Happy New Year! I heard a radio show host asking the question: “At what point do you stop wishing people Happy New Year? Is it a few days into the new year, a week, two weeks?” Here’s my thought ... I wish Happy New Year if I haven’t spoken to the person since the new year began. So, I guess some people get wished Happy New Year in June. While that may result in some strange looks, I feel I have then fulfilled my seasonal obligation. And, I suppose if you say Happy New Years it could be said that I’m getting ahead of the curve and doing it early for 2020. Aha! As The Kawartha Promoter heads into 2019, we have some exciting projects in the works. First, we are pleased to bring back Minaajim: Good Stories from Curve Lake First Nation by Doug Williams. In Our The Kawartha Our new website is now live and contains longer versions of stories we Next Issue carry in the printed version, as well as an events listing where you can add Valentine’s Day Family Day Call Laura at 705-738-6188 to book your ad space today. your event.

Last fall, The Kawartha Promoter, along with other promotional media, were used by the Bobcaygeon Legion to ask for community support by attending Legion Events. Not only did we get community support but the community came on board with ideas of their own to help attract people to our events. Paradiso did a Fashion show at our Ladies’ night and the event sold out. The New Rockland Motel did an Eastern Indian Dinner that sold out. EggSmart did a Greek Dinner that sold out. This was the start of an invasion of people

wanting to come to Legion Events. Our Elvis Tribute Show sold out and our Butter Tart High Tea, that was the brain wave of Kim’s Salon, also sold out. Not only did these community businesses come through but most are planning on coming back with different suggestions. New businesses are coming forward now to offer support. The Kinettes, under the guidance of Shirley Grills, helped immensely with the Ladies’ Night. Margaret Weikmann from Royal Lepage helped with several events. Just for the Halibut came through with donations for our Loonie Auction as well as other ways to support us. Local business gave items to our auctions and individual members of the community and Legion members stepped up and added in many ways to the success of these events. The Legion has never received such amazing support. This was a blitz of 11 events over four months and each and every one was more successful than our highest expectations. It is impossible to thank everyone who made these events possible. As we enter this New Year 2019, we want to thank everyone who has supported the Royal Canadian Legion in Bobcaygeon in any way. You have all given us renewed hope and inspired us to carry on with our mission to serve Veterans and our community. We welcome everyone in the Community to come to the Legion and we thank everyone who answered the call to help over the past four months. Happy New Year. Margaret Cameron, Past President, Ways & Means


The Municipality of Trent Lakes Hamper Committee would like to thank everyone for all their help with the 2018 Christmas Hamper. We were able to brighten the holidays for 26 families. It was heartwarming to see all the donations of money, toys and food that you all gave us for this very special event. We would like to thank all the papers for placing this announcement in their paper and also thank the community business, real estate offices, community supporters at large and everyone else who donated their time for going out of their way to add their touch to this day. You made it very special. We would also like to give a special thank you to Buckhorn Foodland for that extra mile you went to make sure that we had everything needed for these hampers. Foodland really showed us how much this community means to them. So once again we thank you, from all of us, to all of you, have a wonderful 2019.

City Hall

By Kirk Winter

There’s more news from City Hall than there was space in the printed version of The Kawartha Promoter. Additional articles can be found on our new website:


At a Special Council meeting on Thursday, December 13, senior staff, led by recent hire Jennifer Stouver, presented a budget outline to the CKL Council. This was her first budget presentation. The 2019 budget was constructed within the framework of the Long-Term Financial Plan that was started in 2017, and with the Ten-Year Plan for longterm sustainability in mind. Staff has proposed a budget to Council that features a $5,889,534 increase over 2018. That would be an overall 5.5 percent increase in spending, but 1.5 percent was removed because of a growth in assessment. The total not currently covered by taxation is approximately $4.2 million, or about 4 percent. Stouver explained that this does not mean a universal levy increase for every household in CKL of 4 percent. Depending on your area, tax rates and improvements made to the property that would impact your MPAC rating, some people could see increases at little more than 2.5 percent while others could see an increase of close to 8 percent in their taxes if examples given from last year’s budget play out again. Stouver shared that between 2010 and 2017, the average tax levy increases in the City were 3.75 percent. Between 2018 and 2028 increases in the tax levy are expected to drop, on average, to 2.84 percent per year. The presentation continued specifically listing where the bulk of the City budget will be spent. •C  ommunity Services like parks, recreation and culture consumed 10 percent of the total budget. • E mergency Services, which consist of fire protection, the police department and paramedics consume 29 percent of the budget. •P  ublic works, which includes road maintenance, snow removal and garbage pick-up eats up another 29 percent of the budget. •M  ayor and Council will surprisingly only cost 1 percent of the total operating budget for 2019. The budget is split into two enormous chunks, the operating budget and the capital budget. The operating budget simply covers the daily expenses of running the $3.2 billion enterprise called the City of Kawartha Lakes. For 2019, that budget has been set at $200.8 million. The second part of the budget is the capital budget, and this budget includes one-time only spending to improve quality of life and infrastructure all over the City. This budget is set for 2019 at $48.5 million. Major expenditures anticipated in 2019 include the reconstruction of Peel and Russell Streets in

Lindsay, as well as the replacement of culverts, roads, and bridges in many different locales right across the City. Roads in general make up 49 percent of the capital budget. An additional 17 percent of the capital budget will be eaten up by the Bobcaygeon Beach project and the Logie Street Park project. The Fire Department will get a 9 percent share of the capital budget to cover the cost of the new Mariposa Fire hall and a new aerial truck. In addition to the operating and capital budgets, the city’s total budget includes the $22.5 million the City raises in user fees from things like development fees, as well as rentals for halls, arenas and sports fields. When taken as a total, the proposed City budget for 2019 is a touch under $272 million. There will be two Special Council meetings to allow public input of the budgeting process. On January 23 and February 13, Council sessions will begin at 9am to allow time for maximum public participation.

On December 11, the new Trent Lakes Council met for the first regular meeting under the leadership of Mayor Janet Clarkson. Re-elected Deputy Mayor Ron Windover and Terry Lambshead were joined by newly elected Councillors Carol Armstrong and Kim Letto. Council heard a presentation from Dr. Rosana Salvaterra, Medical Officer of Health for Peterborough Public Health, in defence of the Septic Re-inspection program that has been ongoing in Trent Lakes since 2016. Dr. Salvaterra wanted to clarify some misconceptions and misinformation circulating about the program. She said, “The common complaint is that in this area property owners are charged a fee while neighbouring municipalities do not.” Salvaterra clarified that the program in North Kawartha where fees have not been charged was not comparable to the one carried out by Peterborough Public Health. In fact that municipality is developing a Phase 2 of their program which will come with costs to property owners. In City of Kawartha Lakes they only do mandatory inspections for the building code. That work is done by City officials and covered by the City. In Trent Lakes, the fee for inspection is $325. The septic inspection program has been a major benefit to the Trent Lakes community and the water systems within the municipality, according to the report presented to Council. Inspection protects vulnerable areas against nutrient loading and educates landowners on septic maintenance. In fact cottage associations like Crystal Lake and Salmon Lake have requested these inspections for their properties. So far the inspection process has focused around Pigeon Lake with 300 inspections per year. The other item of interest on Council’s agenda was considering the sale of recreational cannabis in the municipality. In a report prepared by Brian Raymond, Chief Building Official, it was recommended that Council pass a resolution supporting cannabis retail sales under the proposed provincial licensing provisions; that

Have you heard BOB lately? BOB listened to you!

Council direct staff to prepare policy to establish the criteria by which the Municipality will review licence applications submitted through the Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario (AGCO); that Council pass a resolution to grant the Planning Technician and Chief Building Official delegated authority to submit comments on behalf of the municipality regarding licence applications for new recreational cannabis retail businesses; and that Council consider a request from Peterborough Public Health to join the proposed regional cannabis collaborating committee and review existing no-smoking bylaws. As an initial incentive the province will pay every municipality on a pro-rated basis. Municipalities that permit retail sales will get a second similar payment. For Trent Lakes that amount would be $8,809 for each payment in 2019. That also includes future incentives and tax sharing. Participating municipalities may also apply for additional funding for enforcement costs and a share of revenues from Ontario’s portion of excise duty. Also there would be additional revenues from general property taxes. If a municipality opts out it forfeits the chance to collect these future funds. Since municipalities only have until January 22, 2019 to reply to AGCO, Council determined to support the resolutions as presented. The application process for private cannabis stores began in December, with stores expected to open as soon as April 1, 2019.


The Mayor’s motion to direct staff to report on the rehabilitation of the Galway depot comes on the heels of a five-year project to create a central depot that lost favour with the public after Council had agreed to move forward on construction. Councillor Terry Lambshead opposed the Mayor’s motion and reminded Council that “they need to look at the big picture first.” He advised Council that what was needed was a “strategic facilities master plan.” The motion was defeated 3/2. The second motion brought forward by the Mayor involved accepting 52 bags of waste per year. Once again, it was Councillor Lambshead who reminded Council that this policy issue should be developed by the municipality and Peterborough County together. This motion was also defeated 3/2. Lastly, Deputy Mayor Ron Windover brought forward a motion to ask Council to direct staff to review Council salaries. Last year, the municipality hired a consultant who examined all salaries paid to elected officials and found that Councillors and the Deputy Mayor positions were very well paid in comparison to other municipalities. In fact, it was the Mayor’s position that was underpaid. This motion was defeated 4/1. Council did support the Mayor’s motion to create a committee to look at short-term and shared rental housing. d,^E/KZ^Z'dd/E'Z^ The past Council also looked at a fireworks by-law, as motioned by the Mayor to revisit. The issue, then as now, is one of enforcement; however Council decided to support this motion and requested staff look at it again.

By Glenna Burns

Trent Lakes Council meetings for 2019 got off to a slow start. After almost 3 hours of hearing budget requests and zoning issues, Council spent a lengthy period of time examining motions brought forward by the Mayor, Janet Clarkson and Deputy Mayor Ron Windover. These motions mainly seemed to be fulfilling election promises made by the Mayor, who heard some citizen anger over municipal depots, garbage tags and fireworks. I have observed and reported on Trent Lakes Council for four years and it appears as if these three problems are revisited, resolved (after many dollars spent) and then revisited again.

Melodie McCullough

Aquarius (Jan. 21 to Feb. 19) Jan. 20 to 21 is a full moon, Aquarius. But wait – it’s also a supermoon and a total lunar eclipse. The Indigenous people of Turtle Island (Canada) called it the Spirit Moon and said it is a time to honour the silence of the land and appreciate the Great Mysteries! So, don’t forget to look at the moon and enjoy its splendour! Pisces (Feb. 20 to March 20) Be careful how you handle your cash, Pisces. At this time of year, especially, money matters can be difficult. Don’t fret – but don’t completely relax either! Aries (March 21 to April 20) If you are looking for a brand new love, Aries, the stars are shining in the right direction! Look up and see for yourself – and perhaps share the glorious sight with your new-found significant other! Taurus (April 21 to May 21) Don’t let the shadows of the past dictate what your life will be, dear Taurus. If someone has hurt you, try to let the hurt flow slowly away, so they no longer have control over your feelings, your mind, your heart. Gemini (May 22 to June 22) Here’s to good health in 2019, Gemini. You know all the rules you’re supposed to follow to stay healthy – eat well, sleep well, exercise, don’t smoke. We say, yes, follow the rules -- but the most important thing is to enjoy life – smile, laugh and live every minute. Cancer (June 23 to July 23) Love will find a way. Yes, Cancer, love has a way of coming into your life in unexpected and unusual forms and at uncertain times. But, if it was meant to be, it WILL turn up when most needed. Leo (July 24 to Aug. 23) Wow! You’ve really had a hard time of it lately, Leo. But guess what? You have come out the other side, still smiling, still strong. There isn’t much that can slow YOU down! Virgo (Aug. 24 to Sept. 23) Your quote of the day, Virgo, is: “Everything has beauty, but not everyone sees it,” by Confucius. We recommend you try harder to see the loveliness in things you might usually think of as ordinary. You never know what you might discover! Libra (Sept. 24 to Oct. 23) Practice patience. Those are crucial words, Libra, especially in the coming days. As you work towards your goals, always remember that patience is key to success. Scorpio (Oct. 24 to Nov. 22) Scorpio, your lucky number during this phase is “eight”. You may not be fully aware of its importance, but just “let it be”. Let it guide you in unknown ways. Sagittarius (Nov. 23 to Dec. 21) Not now, but in the near future, you may be faced with making some interesting decisions about your career path, Sag. Look into all possibilities, do your research, ask advice – and then follow your heart!! Capricorn (Dec. 22 to Jan. 20) It’s the time of your birthday and also a new year is unfolding, Capricorn, and that means lots of time for new beginnings, new ideas, new opportunities and a chance to start afresh!



The Council members would like to wish their volunteers, advertisers, sponsors and you, our audience a happy and healthy New Year. It is proving to be an exciting year with many wonderful musicians lined up for your entertainment. On January 27 (which is just around the corner), the Music Alive series will continue with Rhythmfoot - the celebrated Leahy family. The concert will be held at Trinity United Church at 2:30pm. Anyone who likes Step and Fiddle events should think of purchasing tickets. If you see one of our flyers around the village, you will notice that if you present one at the door you have a saving of $5. The Board is losing two of its members this year, although both are staying involved as volunteers. If there is anyone out there at all interested in becoming a volunteer for just a few hours now and then, all our Board members could use a little help once in a while. You could be assigned to one of them. There will be more news coming up next time, so as they say, stay tuned!

The Kawartha Lakes Health Coalition (KLHC) is dedicated to improving the regional health supports for our local community. Although we have successfully stopped the merger of the Ross Memorial Hospital with Peterborough Regional, the work is far from done. Hallway medicine, lack of funding, the need for more skilled health professionals including family medicine practitioners in our area for our growing and aging population, are just a few of the issues at the forefront of our focus. The Kawartha Lakes Health Coalition has commenced hosting a series of monthly “Information Session” meetings starting Thursday, January 17 in two locations: Bobcaygeon Municipal Service Centre from 2 to 4pm and the Kawartha Lakes Public Library in Lindsay from 6 to 8pm. The initial session will provide information about legislative concerns regarding provincial funding, areas of concern that have been previously identified and also survey participants about what their health support concerns are and will seek suggestions and

participation from volunteers to move those concerns forward. The KLHC will also be attending the Pre-Budget Hearings for the Standing Committee of the Ontario Legislature on Finance & Economic Affairs to represent the needs of Kawartha Lakes. Having input from local residents is essential. While we are currently serviced by an excellent hospital and enjoy many community supports, there is little more important than ever-improving health services because they touch all facets of our life from birth to death and everything in between. Our community is growing and evolving and our healthcare needs to do likewise . To get that funding and services we need from Queen’s Park and other agencies, we need to have a strong, educated, united voice.

their lives. As the contest name implies, participants are asked if they would rather reduce smoking or win cash prizes. “If you’re are looking for a reason to give up or reduce tobacco use, the Wouldurather contest is a great way to motivate yourself,” says Jennifer Robertson, a Public Health Nurse with the Haliburton, Kawartha, Pine Ridge District Health Unit. “Wouldurather offers you a chance to win cash for quitting, but also provides plenty of support to help you along the way.” People only have until January 27 to register for the Wouldurather contest, which runs over six weeks (January 28 to March 10). There are four categories to enter: • Quit For Good: Quit smoking completely and have a chance to win $2,500. • Keep The Count: Cut smoking by half to be eligible to win $1,000. • Party Without The Smoke: Cut out smoking while drinking or partying for a chance to win $500. • Don’t Start and Win: Stay smoke-free for an opportunity to win $250.   People can register with a ‘buddy’ who can support them during the contest. Additional quitsmoking resources are also available for participants in the Wouldurather contest, including access to no-cost nicotine replacement therapy (patch, gum). Robertson says January is a perfect time to quit smoking, since National Non-Smoking Week (January 20-26) and Weedless Wednesday (January 23) both occur this month. Woulduather is organized by Leave

Dr. Bert Lauwers, President and CEO at the Ross Memorial Hospital is leaving early in the new year. He will take on a new role of Executive Vice President of Medical and Clinical Programs at the Scarborough Health Network on April 1. Val Harris, RMH Board Chair said, “Dr. Lauwers’ energy and attention to every aspect of patient care has been an inspiration for so many at the Ross.” “The Ross Memorial has been my second home for so long,” said Dr. Lauwers. “I know my Ross Family will always hold a special place in my heart. Dr. Lauwers’ last official day as President and CEO will be February 28. The Board will announce an Interim President and CEO shortly, and will launch the process to recruit a permanent replacement.


When it comes to the selection of a hearing instrument, it is generally true that bigger is more powerful. While individuals with mild-to-moderate hearing loss will most likely find that in-the-canal instruments can adequately meet their needs, those with moderate-to-severe hearing loss are usually best served by larger, behind-the-ear instruments with greater power and capabilities. However, larger does not necessarily mean more intrusive. Unlike traditional behind-the-ear instruments, an “open fit” instrument is also worn behind the ear, but is smaller. Instead of housing the microphone, digital processor, battery, and speaker in one unit, open fit instruments use a thin tube to connect a tiny speaker to a smaller behind-theear housing. This design is less visible and affords greater comfort. There are many marvels that exist today in the hearing industry that make it easier than ever to enhance your hearing. And you’ll be glad to know you can always expect to find the best way to get the sounds of life back when you put your hearing healthcare needs in expert, compassionate hands of a doctor of audiology at LINDSAY EAR CLINIC. Together, we will investigate ways to improve your hearing, and we’ll set realistic goals for better communication. Our objective is to meet all your hearing healthcare needs. P.S. Because open fit hearing instruments do not require an ear mold, they provide a more natural hearing experience.

Good Stories from Curve Lake First Nation


As told by Doug Williams to Julie Kapyrka

Years ago, my friend Norman Knott, who I was teaching to hunt and fish, asked me how to snare rabbits. I said, “Okay, let’s go over to Moore Lake swamp, there are plenty over there to catch.” So we struck out. Once we were in the swamp I showed him how to do it – put the snare and the little sticks down and showed him how as the rabbit jumps

ahead it would snare itself. Once he seemed familiar with all that I said, “You go down this path and I will go down this one, and wherever you see rabbit tracks put down some snares.” We made our snares out of copper wire that we used to get from Whetung’s General Store. So away he went and set some snares and I went my way and set quite a few. We came out of the bush and went home. I told Norman I would see him in the morning to check our snares. Norman showed up early the next morning, really early. At that time of the year daylight did not come until 7am to 8am. Well, he was at my house at 4am! He couldn’t sleep, he was so eager to check the snares. I said, “Oh it is early! But okay, let’s go.” I had to find a couple flashlights and I gave one to him. We got to the site in darkness. It was very dark at that time of year. So Norman went his way and I went my way. I was checking my snares and happy to see that I had a few rabbits. I came across one snare that was broken and mangled. There was blood and some tracks – something happened here that indicated a fight of some sort. I continued on when all of a sudden deep in the swamp I saw something going through the spruce and cedar bush flying at about 10 feet high. It looked like a white rabbit flying through the bush! I got scared and thought: Oh no, it’s the spirit of WABOOSE (rabbit) coming to tell me not to overharvest. It really freaked me out but I continued to finish checking my snares. I got three rabbits and was happy because this would make a good soup or a stew and my Grandma made amazing food. I returned to where I met Norman. He had a couple rabbits for his family and he was really happy that he now knew how to snare rabbits. I said, “Norman, I have something to tell you. I saw a flying rabbit!” Norman says, “C’mon, you’re pulling my leg?!” “Yes! I saw a flying rabbit.” “Well, how do you explain that?” asked Norman. Suddenly there was a movement in a tree nearby. We both looked, and there was a great-horned owl perched on a spruce branch eating a white rabbit… and then I understood. I couldn’t see the owl in the dark, and because it has silent wings, I couldn’t hear the owl. And I remembered the mangled snare. And that is how I saw a rabbit fly. I have seen many animals of all types do mysterious and wondrous things…but that is another story.

In his new book, Michi Saagiig Nishnaabeg: This Is Our Territory, Doug Williams (Gidigaa Migizi) explains that the oral traditions of transferring knowledge from generation to generation is a valid tool for knowing and understanding history. With permission from the author, here is an excerpt from the Introduction to Michi Saagiig Nishnaabeg: This Is Our Territory. “I want to write this down because the Michi Saagiig Nishnaabeg side of the story is almost lost in terms of how the history of Ontario has been told by the mainstream historians of Ontario. I have always found it intriguing that there is a difference between oral stories and the academic telling of events. Because I am involved in the university and teach Indigenous Knowledge in the academy, I have thought a lot about this. Academics often view oral storytelling as a weak link to history. The disciplines at university that particularly deal with First Nations

- archaeology and history - are full of white men who interpret events in their own way without regard to our knowledge. Indigenous Knowledge is still not considered a valid form of knowledge in many disciplines. There are political consequences for this, these beliefs hurt our people and hurt our relationship to our land. Our knowledge is just as important as western knowledge.” The history that Gidigaa Migizi writes about is eye-opening and fascinating, far beyond anything ever studied in high school or university for most readers. If you are interested in reading Michi Saagiig Nishnaabeg: This Is Our Territory and discussing it with others, a book study group is planned for January 20, February 3 and 17 and March 3 at Knox Presbyterian Church Hall beginning at 2pm each Sunday. Also look online at for information or email Gidigaa Migizi’s book will be available locally at The Kawartha Promoter and Kawartha Coffee for $20. It is also available at Amazon online.

The Manilla Community Hall has been in its current location since 1948. It serves both Brock Township and the City of Kawartha Lakes as it straddles the boundary line, Simcoe Street. Organizers try to keep the hall active with monthly events and rentals. It is a well maintained building with lots of country charm. Many family celebrations and activities have been held there through the years and we hope to keep it active for many more years to come. There are two monthly events and a few other special events throughout the year, including Snowfest on February 23, a 3-pitch baseball tournament in the snow and three children’s parties. In January, there are two events on the schedule: • Thursday, January 17: Food for Thought Luncheon with three speakers starting at 10am followed by a homemade lunch. This month’s speakers are from Brock Fire Department., Community Care, Kawartha Lakes and from Durham Regional Police. Admission $7. RSVP to 705-357-3637. • Sunday, January 27: Fiddle Jam from 1 to 5pm. Good music, good dancing and good friends and prizes too. Lunch is available. Admission $5. You can get more information at 705-357-3637.

For the past few years I have been organizing a winter event, called the Fenelon Falls Winter Festival. But it occurred to me that I hadn’t really given much thought to how quickly snowshoeing has become mainstream. Here’s why I think snowshoeing may in just be the ultimate family winter activity. • Snowshoe lessons? If you can walk, you can snowshoe. You can’t go downhill skiing or even cross country without some training. • Snowshoeing is a family sport! Bring toboggans, make snowballs, build snow forts and when you lie down “think snow angels”. Snowshoeing is all about playing. • Snowshoeing is affordable. Rent the snowshoes, that’s it! No special equipment needed, no lift tickets, no gas for the sled, and if you buy one size fits you for many, many years. • Snowshoeing - Hit the trails year-round! Hiking is very popular with “the Instagram generation.” Snowshoes make it easy to continue hiking throughout the winter season. • Snowshoeing requires less fitness. Choose a flat trail, ideally after a light snowfall, and bring all your friends and the kids. You will be amazed how much fun it is making tracks. • Snowshoeing is fun for all. Kids, parents and grandparents can safely get on the trails and hike a short distance comfortably. And you smile because age is not a factor. So during your big adventure, create a moment to remember on a snow covered log, break out the 18

Do you remember the children’s book ‘The Little Engine That Could’? It’s a story that celebrates optimism and hard work. That’s how I think of Environmental Action Bobcaygeon. Ten years ago, a small group met to explore what they could do to give back to the community. They formed a not-for-profit organization, called Environmental Action Bobcaygeon, to undertake projects that benefit both the environment and the community. Our first project, in 2008, ‘Operation Porchlight’, was to deliver information and energy efficient lightbulbs to more than 2,000 homes in Bobcaygeon. Our next project was the initiation of the very successful Bobcaygeon Farmers’ Market in 2010. It now draws hundreds of visitors every Saturday morning from the end of May through the end of October. We also built a number of well-used community gardens on the properties of Trinity United Church and Kawartha Settlers’ Village. In 2013, we partnered with the City to build Wilderness Park in the N.E. corner of Bobcaygeon. It’s a beautiful little 8-acre park in a mature forest, with hiking trails, nature interpretation signs and a large bee garden or pollinator patch. Our newest project (which is a large, multi-year undertaking) is to develop a safe and scenic network of bicycle and walking routes for Bobcaygeon. We’re also in the early stages of two more exciting projects -- assisting with an Urban Forest Strategy or ‘Tree Plan’ for Bobcaygeon, and restoration and protection of the historic Case Manor Stone Wall along Canal Street. I think we can, I think we can ...
