Jane’s Walk, Spring Bird Festival on Leslie Spit, Applegrove SPA night

Thanks to everyone who came out for my Jane’s Walk on May 4, 2014. We had about 30 people start at Ashbridge’s Bay and make our way up the Ashbridge’s Creek valley, ending at Monarch Park. I’ll post some photos soon.

Continuing on the outdoor theme, this Saturday May 10, 2014 you can take part in the Spring Bird Festival on Leslie Spit (you will see the name Tommy Thompson Park which is the “official” name of Leslie Spit).

And in one other piece of news, Applegrove has decided not to go ahead with a SPA night this year.
