In addition to onsite activities during the Family Day weekend, the FRDC is excited to continue to share its newest FRDC@HOME program series: Sit Spots!

In our busy lives, it’s easy to take for granted the beautiful and vibrant natural world that surrounds us. If you pause and take a look around, you might be surprised by what you notice!

In our last sit spot video, FRDC staff introduced participants to sit spots, explaining what they are and how they work. This Family Day long weekend join us again as we explore Sound Mapping our surroundings, an observation technique that helps us open our ears to all the sounds around us!

Drop by our website or YouTube channel on February 13th and get ready to discover a new way to appreciate and observe our amazing watershed!
