Outings & Workshops 2024

The BNIA is offering this program of Outings and Workshops designed to build awareness and respect for the natural and human history of our area, as well as provide opportunities to socialize and have some fun! For a calendar view of the summer go here.

REGISTRATION: Both events require registration, which will open on July 1. Return here for a link to the registration form.


Grab your paddle and head out on a fascinating, curated history tour past 13 early-20th-century Bayfield Inlet cottages. Each property’s provenance and relevance to the inlet has been researched, will be written up and posted on our website so that, along with a numbered route map, participants can come prepared for a deep dive into the past. (Plus, if you miss the tour, you can also do your own self-guided version!)


Join celebrated Canadian geologist and author Nick Eyles as he walks and talks across the iconic landscape of Painted Rocks on Charles Inlet, just north of Bayfield. Nick’s reputation as a “rock star” has evolved out of his passion for the Canadian Shield and his affinity for the complex ecosystem of the eastern shores of Georgian Bay.

Registration: 75 max participants, BNIA members only, max. five per family, register here
