On Sunday May 25 our Elbow Lake Environmental Education Centre had its annual open house. Manager Carolyn Bonta welcomed many visitors both nearby and from Kingston and other nearby towns and cities. The event was particularly gratifying as Carolyn revealed new educational signage including one for our extensive trail system, a new walking bridge, and a new trail app envisioned by Carolyn and coded by David Lougheed (funded through the generosity of the TD Friends of the Environment Foundation). There were lots of activities including a hike, limnology 'lab' and opportunities for canoeing.
