CANCELLED – Say Goodbye to Winter, Silent Lake Provincial Park

2020-03-15 @ 10:30 AM - 4:00 PM

Say Goodbye to Winter, Silent Lake Provincial Park

Sunday, March 15, 2020 10:30 a.m.

Often in early to mid March when spring is well underway in Peterborough, a storm goes through that drops a lot of rain. Meanwhile, Silent Lake will get a fresh blanket of snow. That is my cue to head up to The Park for a “Goodbye Winter” walk along Bonnie’s Pond Trail. Unfortunately this year, the Park is getting rain so the trails could be icy. I recommend wearing ice cleats and bringing walking poles to be on the safe side. There should still be lots of snow though. For those who missed the First Day walk, this is your chance to see how beautiful this landscape can be in winter.  For further information contact [email protected]

Bring binoculars, walking poles, change to share the gas and park admission costs and a packed lunch as the outing will last until the middle of the afternoon. Dress for the Apsley weather forecast for the day.

We will meet at the Riverview Park and  Zoo at 10:30 a.m. to arrange car pooling. If you wish, meet us at the day use washrooms at 11:30. We should be back to Peterborough by 4:00 p.m.
