Logging History in Haliburton County

Though there were thousands of such chutes around Ontario, this is now the last of its kind. With the guidance of a volunteer from the Stanhope Museum, we'll take a tour of the Chute, and hike the surrounding trails. Dress for the weather, bring your camera, and pack a picnic lunch if you like. There are tables available near the riverside. Cost: $5 per adult, kids free with paid adult Location: Hawk Lake Log Chute (click here for a map), Big Hawk Lake Rd., Carnarvon Leader: Bill Forbes, Stanhope Heritage Discovery Museum This event is part of the Hike Haliburton Festival!

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.
