September Arrives In The Hills

Make It A September To Remember!

——————————————————————————————–
September Fun Facts

  • September comes from the Latin root septem-, meaning “seven,” because in the original Roman republican calendar September was the seventh month of the year rather than the ninth
  • In 1752 September only had 19 days.  The 3rd-13th were omitted in the change from Julian to Gregorian calendars.
  • The Harvest Moon is closest to the fall equinox. The Harvest Moon was named because it rises within a half-hour of when the sun sets. When farmers had no tractors, it was essential that they work by the light of the moon to bring in the harvest.

Calling All Teachers! Principals and Schools!

The Mansfield Outdoor Centre is thrilled to be kicking off another Back-To-School season!  Did you know that in the heart of Mulmur we have the leading Outdoor Education centre in curriculum-based education?  We teach on across 300 acres of fields, streams and forests to create life changes experiences.

In this day and age of technology and mobile devices, kids have lost touch with nature, and as a result are losing valuable skills.  Heads are down, swiping screens and pushing buttons sitting on couches…automation is stealing creativity, problem solving and social skills.  It affects the classroom and our communities.

We have a solution!  Join us!  We will help support you and rebuild the connective tissues that make education meaningful.  We want to help you create great kids and great communities!

Sign-up and register!  We have so many great programs to choose from.

Bruce Trail Day!

September Hiking!

The Dufferin Hi-Land Bruce Trail Club is pleased to be holding our annual Bruce Trail Day at the beautiful Bruce Trail Conservancy (BTC) owned Splitrock Narrows property, located at 755437 2nd Line E in Mono, between 25 and 30 Sideroads. Yes, we know this is not technically a Mulmur event, but 2/3rds of the Dufferin Hi-Land section is in Mulmur, and many of our members, volunteers and folks who use the trail do live in Mulmur. Plus, it is only five minutes south of Highway 89.

At this free event, there will be guided and self guided hikes, activities for children, such as wildflower seed spreading and bird box building, and a barbeque. Plus the first 20 new members that sign up that day will receive a copy of the 29th edition Bruce Trail Guide, a 40 dollar value. The Splitrock property is a perfect place to showcase the conservation aspects of the BTC, and is a wonderful place to walk, with looped hikes through the exposed escarpment, wonderful views over the countryside from the cliff edge, and – of course – the unique 200 metre long Splitrock Narrows, a twelve foot deep chasm carved out of the rock.

Please show your support for the Bruce Trail by joining us, and tell all of your friends.
