If you have something of interest to share with fellow members, feel free so send it to me and you too can be a guest web site author! Continue reading
The tour of Rick Wright’s property last Saturday was a great opportunity to learn new things, see varied property features, get ideas for managing your own woodlot, and chat with other members.

Just a reminder of the woodlot tour this Saturday, May 10th. For details, directions map, and online registration, see news post below. Woodlot tours are a great way to meet members and to get ideas for managing and developing your own woodlot, and this property sounds like it will be particularly interesting. Continue reading

At the Annual General Meeting of the GCWA in February, a motion was passed by members to proceed with steps required to amalgamate with the Bruce County Woodlot Association. Over the next few weeks and months, meetings will take place between the two organizations to hammer out the details. We have set up a GCWA-BCWA amalgamation web page to keep you informed and because we want your input. Your 2014 member password is required to access this page. The first meeting of the two Boards takes place April 15th so if you have ideas/suggestions please submit them online or contact any GCWA Board member.
