Fall fairs are ingrained in Grey County's history. Most still celebrate the season the way it has been done for well over a century in rural Ontario, with livestock and trained animal shows; bake-offs; fruit, vegetable, flower and preserve contests; parades; quilt and art shows; farm equipment displays; BBQ dinners and live entertainment.
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!
