Join us for a nature walk to enjoy God’s creation!
Have you ever been on a road trip & had a hard
time finding a place to stay, & when you finally found a place, it wasn’t
what you’d hoped? This is happening a lot in the animal world, especially for
species who depend on snags (dead standing logs) for all or part of their life
cycles. Join Carling Dewar to learn about the competitive market for snags,
which species depend on them, & the solutions that animals & humans
have come up with to address this problem.
Carling Dewar holds a Masters of Environmental
Science from the UofT & is involved in a variety of conservation
initiatives, from flying squirrel research in Haliburton Forest, to
species-at-risk policy implementation in Ont & across Canada. She continues
to support these initiatives through volunteer work with the Kawartha Wildlife
Centre & in her position with Ancient Forest Exploration & Research as
a Forest Ecologist & Outreach Coordinator.

Our Vacation Bible Camp held each August gets great reviews.
Bible stories are retold with themes that make them relevant to the everyday lives of children ages 3-12. The children enjoy many lively activities including drama, music, arts and crafts, games and storytelling.
Each day, tasty, healthy snacks are provided and a highlight of the week is a closing program to which parents are invited. All children are welcome to join this great educational program.
