Fall Changes at the Nature Retreat

Published By on October 4th, 2006 in Edge Insider

Last Sunday the deep rumble chainsaws could be heard out at our retreat centre- nope, we aren’t hosting this years Timber Sports event- we’re expanding! Due to our increasing fall and winter programs we need more insulated cabins with heat. These cabins will be deluxe- with their own composting toilets, propane heat (easier temperature control) and easily accessible in the deep winter snow.

But lets not mention snow for another month or so….I have been hiking the trails around the lodge with different groups quite a bit. The paths are golden with splatters of crimson sugar maple leaves. With many of the leaves down it has been easier to see signs of wildlife on the bark of trees. I have been able to easily spot the claw marks of bears climbing to the tops of beech trees to retrieve nuts and nibble marks of moose begining to brouse on the bark of hardwood. Speaking of moose- the season of love has begun! I have regularly heard the bellows of single moose looking for a mate. The forest is never a boring place!

Well- I hope everyone enjoys their long weekend.

I am off on a canoe trip with friends and family!
