The County has officially proclaimed twenty-twenty as the year to gather. To gather a basket full of local produce, meats, and spirits from a local farm store or market. To gather your friends and family around a big table (or kitchen island), to celebrate each other and the local bounty before you. To gather around a restaurant table and appreciate the love the chefs bring to your plate. It’s the year of you, and your connection to this place through the food you eat and the people you spend time with.
As summer draws to a close the salmon battle their way upstream to return to their spawning beds. Witnessing this salmon migration is a must. The Mill Dam in Owen Sound and the Thornbury Fishway both offer great views of the salmon jumping while the Owen Sound Salmon Eco Tour can teach you more about this amazing species.
