This summer, we’ve planned some fun, let’s-try-to-get-back-together-again, outdoor events for the whole family! Let’s see if we can have some fun, while continuing to stay safe, as we begin to dip our toes back into the Bay.
You can keep up to date with Outings and Events news on the BNIA website. Also see the online calendar at bnia.ca/events. We’ll also send reminders and updates by our regular BNIA e-newsletters.
Join Georgian Bay Biosphere staff to learn about the islands of Georgian Bay through a short talk and guided paddle! We’ll dive into the inland islands versus outer islands: what are the differences in ecology, water quality, and what are the stewardship opportunities?
