Cornwall Ontario – Ontario Power Generation (OPG) has partnered with Raisin Region Conservation Authority (RRCA) and Thousand Islands Ground Search and Rescue to offer a fun day of nature and survival skills.
“Our first ever nature day is an opportunity for families of all ages to discover indigenous plant species that thrive around the St. Lawrence Power Development Visitor Centre.” says OPG University Summer Kasey Sleeman. “Bring your green thumbs and enjoy the outdoors. You’ll have an awesome time while learning about the environment.”
“We’ll also be teaching some cool survival tips that will be handy for campers and outdoor enthusiasts.” says Kate Hey an operator at OPG’s RH Saunders Generating Station and a volunteer with Thousand Islands Ground Search and Rescue. “Come on out for a free fun filled day.”
There will be guided nature walks, a scavenger hunt, and a tree planting ceremony including a naming contest.
Join us August 25th from noon to 3 pm, at the OPG St. Lawrence Power Development Visitor Centre, located at 2500B Second Street West, Cornwall.
