Birdathon
Time: 12:00 am -11:59 pm
Location: Haliburton Forest & Wild Life Reserve Ltd.
The Birdathon has become a tradition amongst our campers at Haliburton Forest. For one day a year during the spring migration we ask all professional and amateur birders alike to scour the forest in search of their 2 legged, feathered friends. Some participants have figured that it is just as much fun to sit back and let the birds come to them. Either way the information collected is equally as important in assisting Haliburton Forest in its long-term monitoring of bird populations. Although the Birdathon is free, regular day pass fees to Haliburton Forest do apply. Everyone is welcome! A bird check list is provided. Time: 12:00 am – 11:59 pm Fee: $16.00 plus HST per adult, children 17 and under no charge. No fee to housekeeping guests and campers of Haliburton Forest. Included: Day pass to Haliburton Forest and a chance to win when you turn in your bird check list. For more information please call 705-754-2198.

Video - Toxic Trespass
Location: Your Home
Raising awareness of the connection between your children�s health and our environment. Book a casual in home video showing for your friends. This is not a sales event. As a courtesy to attendees this is a no scent event (includes perfumes, personal care and laundry scents). In Toxic Trespass, intrepid filmmaker Barri Cohen launches an investigation into the effects of the chemical soup around us. She starts with her 10-year-old daughter, whose blood carries carcinogens like benzene and the long-banned DDT. Then, Cohen heads out to Windsor and Sarnia: Canadian toxic hotspots, with startling clusters of deadly diseases. The filmmaker journeys into toxic nightmares all too common in industrialized countries. She meets passionate activists working for positive change, along with doctors and scientists who see evidence of links between environmental pollution and health problems. And she learns how quickly barriers can go up sometimes, when authorities are questioned about the connection between toxins and serious health problems. This film is essential viewing for anyone concerned about the effects of pollutants on our � and our children�s � very DNA.
