Active Transportation

This Plan of Action for Walking & Cycling is intended to be a tool for the community to be creative; leverage their assets; facilitate community participation; and focus on practical solutions to improve their community through various projects focused on active transportation. It has been created for Environmental Action Bobcaygeon, a local citizens group that has previously been involved in other community development and active lifestyle projects.

This Plan is specifically structured as a series of distinct projects designed to be implemented in both near and longer-terms and be completed by citizens, businesses, as well as the City of Kawartha Lakes.

Winter Photos

 The following pictures were supplied by park users. At this time I do not know the names of the poeple shown  but they do look like they are having a good time.

I thank the photographers for their pictures and  I have tried to provide a variety here. If you keep sending them I would be happy to post more.

Annual General Meeting

Dear Friends of Wilderness Park,

On Monday, September 22, Environmental Action Bobcaygeon will be holding their Annual General Meeting at 7:00pm in the Fellowship Room in Trinity United Church (located at 40 William Street, Bobcaygeon) and you're invited. This is an excellent opportunity to learn about future plans for Wilderness Park and other possible environmental projects for Bobcaygeon. Your ideas and suggestions would really be appreciated.

I would also appreciate your help to conduct a Visitor Survey (i.e. pedestrian count) so that we can demonstrate increased usage of the park to The Ontario Trillium Foundation (who provided the lion share of our funding). Please let me know if you are able to do one or more 1-hour surveys in the park over the next few weeks. I'll be happy to bring you a survey sheet. Thank you for your help. I hope to see many of you on the 22nd.

Kind Regards,

Plant Inventory
