The Ingersoll District Nature Club has two exciting events coming up. We invite everyone to come join us…

Saturday, March 7, 2015 – Hike at Springwater… it’s Maple Syrup Season! Depart from Carpool Lot at 9:00 a.m.  Join us for pancakes and real maple syrup, followed by a trail walk, at Springwater.  Mouth-watering good and beautiful trails!  Learn how maple syrup is made on site – great for kids. We will meet at the municipal parking lot between the Ingersoll Memorial Arena and Tim Horton’s. For more information, call Meg at 519-485-4220.

Tuesday, March 10, 2015 – “Engaging Youth in Nature” with Bernie Solymar, Executive Director, Nature’s Calling Environmental Education – Ingersoll Public Library Meeting Room – 7:00 p.m.  Numerous studies are showing that children exposed to nature and the outdoors perform better in school, are healthier, and respond better to stress.  However, in today’s highly wired world children often get very little exposure to nature and the outdoors.  Learn about the ways that Nature’s Calling Environmental Education is addressing “nature deficit disorder” and how we reconnect families with the natural world.
