The Whimsy Walk!

Celebrate the kick-off of two months of nature related "whimsies" visiting Heritage Park. Join us Saturday, June 10th from 3:00 - 5:00pm at Heritage Park in Canton for a wonderfully whimsical afternoon. Walk the 1/2 mile trail loop in the park to spot all the whimsy wildlife for a prize, enjoy music from NCPR Music Host Sarah Scafidi-McGuire, search for macro-invertebrates with Nature Up North, play a fungi-telephone game with the North Country Children's Museum, and more! Many of the whimsy visitors will be sculptures made by Deep Root Center students and the North Country School students - come show your support for their creativity!

Thank you to our amazing business sponsors: Coakley Home and Hardware and Rex Hardware! 

Rain date: June 11th, 3:00 - 5:00pm

Thank You Volunteers!

Our opening Volunteer Workday on Saturday, May 13th at Heritage Park was a HUGE success!  Thank you to the Corning-Canton Plant volunteers who came out, as well as the assortment of community volunteers and Grasse River Heritage members. With a team of 25 people we made quick work of weeding, mulching, tree limb removal, pruning, laying down wood chips on the trail, and more. We couldn't have done it without YOUR help and we're so appreciative to all of the people who volunteered their time on Saturday morning to help keep Heritage Park looking glamorous. 

Thank You Lance Rudiger - Historical Walk in the Park!

Lance's walk on Saturday, May 13th was a trip back in time, from the Ice Age up through the 17, 18, 1900's and finally to the present day! Lance detailed how the old buildings on the island were used, and what a U.S. president was doing visiting Canton and the park. He explained how the town and the island have changed over hundreds of years, not just socially but geologically and more! Thank you Lance for your expertise and enthusiasm, and for all the community members who came out to learn!
