This past Saturday, June 23rd, TUC staff and volunteers welcomed 200 Duffins Creek area residents to the first annual Duffins Creek Family Fun Day held at Greenwood Conservation Area in Ajax.
Families were greeted by Boomer the Bass and visited nine stations where they met the fish and aquatic bugs living in Duffins Creek, learned about the watershed model, ran the Fishy Escapades obstacle course, tried their hand casting for fish and tying flies with the Izaak Walton Fly Fishing Club, demonstrated their artistic abilities at the fish print table and competed at Fish Jeopardy with Toronto and Region Conservation. The barbeque lunch courtesy of Enbridge Gas Distribution Inc. was also popular destination!
Many thanks to our volunteers and the following organizations who made this beautiful, fun-filled day possible: Enbridge Gas Distribution Inc., the Izaak Walton Fly Fishing Club, Canadian National Sportsmen's Shows, and Toronto and Region Conservation.
