The Annual Louise de Kirliline Lawrence Nature Festival is all set for this Saturday.
Hosted by The Friends of Laurier Woods, it will be held at the Laurier Woods Conservation Area on Aug. 20 from 10 am-3 pm.
It’s organized in conjunction with the Nipissing Naturalists and the North Bay Mattawa Conservation Authority and celebrates North Bay’s natural heritage.
The free event features various activities including “Build a Pollinator Home” with the North Bay-Mattawa Conservation Authority and learning all about what the forest and wetlands have to offer including plants, berries, butterflies, birds and much more.
Friends of Laurier Woods will also be recognizing Caisse Alliance and Tourism North Bay for their generous donations at around 10:30am.
Officials are also asking everyone to bring their empty bottles/cans to contribute to 8 year-old Peter Silver’s collection for new boardwalks at Laurier Woods.
