We are meeting in the gym tonight (October 1st) but we will have a short Nature walk around Four Seasons Park and gather things from nature that show us the seasons are changing for part of tonight's activities. Make sure you bring proper outerwear and footwear for the hike.
See you then! Remember to sign in and out on the sign-in sheet!

Who?: A Colony is 'hosting' our 3rd annual Community Cleanup. We've invited the parents and siblings of our Colony, to join us as we help "Take care of the world" right here in our own neighborhood.
What? For the second year in a row, we've registered with the City of Ottawa's Cleaning the Capital program.
When? Saturday, September 28. We are asking for one (1) hour of help, between 10AM and 12PM. We know that family weekends are busy, we hope that asking for one hour of time any time within this 2 hour window will provide you with enough flexibility to be able to fit this into your day.
Where? We're setting up in the Mountain Meadows parking lot, off of Spratt Road here in Riverside South. We plan on cleaning the entire park, including the forested area in behind the retail strip, all the way to the fence line that separates the B.G.M. school yard from the park.
Why? Parks get messy, and Beavers like to help.
We will have cleaning supplies (Garbage bags, gloves, and paper compost bags) on site courtesy of the city program. As well as some juice boxes.
Please dress appropriately for spending an hour outside, closed toed shoes are recommended. Beaver hats are encouraged, full beaver uniforms are not required.
