The general store was once the original big box retailer; only it came complete with gossip and a place to tie up your horse. In Grey County, the general store culture is still thriving today. They have reinvented themselves to be everything a modern retailer cannot be, which makes them so much fun, and delicious.
It is said that if you’ve got squirrels in your neighbourhood, then you also have owls! But why is it that you rarely see them?
Join Naturalist Peter Thoem of the Owl Foundation as he discusses our obsession with owls and the many mishaps (mostly man-made) that befall these magnificent creatures. Peter will also share the important work of the Vineland-based Owl Foundation which is dedicated to rescuing and rehabilitating injured and orphaned owls.
After the presentation, stay and meet Rucker, our resident barn owl from Under the Canopy: Animals of the Rainforest!
