Save the dates for the 2016 Peninsula Festival,
returning this fall with a weekend of hikes and workshops hosted by the
Peninsula Bruce Trail Club. Here are two of the highlights so far.
“Hiking Among the Red Rocks of Sedona, Arizona” with Peter Russell. Peter is from the University of Waterloo and one of the authors of “Manitoulin Rocks! Rocks, Fossils and Landforms of Manitoulin Island”. Plan on coming to hear Peter after participating in a guided hike on Flowerpot Island.
“From Anomalocaris to Zacanthoides: An Amateur’s Fossil Adventures in the High Rockies” with Beth Gilhespy, Executive Director of the Bruce Trail Conservancy. Beth will take us on a visual exploration of her adventures in Yahoo and Kootenay, showing the finds at historic and recent fossil sites and giving us a glimpse of busy Burgess Shale life a half a billion years ago.
More hikes and workshops will be available throughout the weekend. As the program for the weekend develops more information and the registration process will be posted on this website.
Due to the potential risks involved in hiking during the fall hunting season, the Bruce Trail Conservancy strongly advises that hiking in the Blue Mountains, Beaver Valley, Sydenham and Peninsula Club sections of the Bruce Trail be undertaken with caution during November and December. Please read the trail safety information on the Ontario Trails Council website especially the Hunting season safety section and the "Be Safe, Be Seen" brochure.
