Through the practice of Taoist Tai Chi®arts, you may improve your balance, health, flexibility and wellbeing. If you would like to learn more, we will meet at Goldie Mill Park where you will receive an introduction to Taoist Tai Chi®arts. You will be shown the first few moves of the set and then be asked to join in and share in the experience of Taoist Tai Chi®practice in a beautiful park setting by the river.
Join the Waterloo-Wellington Canoe and Kayak Club for a paddle on the Eramosa. During this paddle, hear about the project called Speed to Sea. Jeremy Shute has been doing a canoe trip (in sections) starting from Guelph, with the goal of getting to the Atlantic. In 2017, we paddled from Guelph to Niagara Falls and this year on to Rochester NY.......
Join an Environmental Educator from the Grand River Conservation Authority and other volunteers as we enter the Speed River in search of crayfish and other aquatic creatures. You’ll learn how to tell the difference between male & female crayfish and find how GRCA uses aquatic creatures to help evaluate water quality in our watershed. Nets and bug containers provided. Wear closed toe water sandals or shoes. No flip flops or bare feet!
Join us to identify some of nature’s inhabitants on land and in water at the former Ontario Reformatory site which could be the Yorklands Green Hub in our future. This planned ecology park has many species of interest and we will have knowledgeable enthusiasts on hand to help you identify them. Bring your cameras or sketch books.
