To mark the occasion of the impending purchase of Willisville Mountain by the Escarpment Biosphere Conservancy, EBC is planning a celebration the afternoon of Saturday June 22. We will arrange for parking in Whitefish Falls and shuttle folks to the base of the trail and back. (So parking is not a problem) The feature will be a walk to the top and back with refreshments at the top. And ‘Thank you’s’ to the many who helped. A modest sign unveiling at/near the bottom. All of BICA is invited. (Rough plan is: Meet at the Community Hall in Whitefish Falls at 1:45. Shuttle people to the base of the walk, Start the walk 2:20, at the top 3:00 ‘til 3:40. Back down about 4:30 or 5:00. Shuttle people back to Whitefish Falls by 5:30.
(For the hike June 22: shoes with good soles, a full water bottle, a camera. The steep parts can get me (71 and over-weight) huffing and puffing, but the trail is doable by the generally healthy and the view from the top takes in McGregor Bay, Bay of Islands, over to Manitoulin, north to Espanola and east into Killarney)
Following the hike, you are invited to a celebration at River Lodge 5:00 to 7:00pm. If you are willing to help with the celebration by bringing an appetizer or beverage please be in touch with Celesta Bjornson or Sheila Williams. The celebration is not funded by members’ dues.
