Upper Canada Bird Sanctuary Winter Program @ Upper Canada Bird Sanctuary
Sep 23 @ 12:00 pm – 4:00 pm
the Friends of the Sanctuary opens the visitor centre on Morrison Road, off County road 2 between Ingleside and Morrisburg. For a modest fee, we offer ski and snowshoe equipment rentals, hot or cold drinks and snacks. There is no fee for using the groomed trails for skiing or the paths for snowshoeing and hiking. You can feed the birds and relax on the open deck, make snowmen and warm up by the fires afterwards.

Transition Cornwall+ is a community group created to help build resilience and sustainability in Cornwall and the surrounding rural area (the + in our name,) in preparation for the combined challenges of peak oil, climate change, and global economic instability. For our communities to withstand the challenges of uncertain times, we need to inspire and support positive local responses at every level – individuals and groups, business and government.

So, what is a transition town?

A Transition Town (or village or city, etc.) is a community-led response to the combined challenges – and opportunities – presented by climate change, fossil fuel depletion, and economic instability. It starts with a small initial group that comes together with a shared concern, then builds into a broad coalition of people and groups within a community. Together, they unleash the genius of the local community to design ways to reduce energy dependence, looking at all the key systems – food, energy, economics, education, transportation, textiles, health, etc. And they do it in ways that are practical, playful, cooperative, engaging, and mindful of the wider questions of biodiversity, social justice, and economic equity.
