As we come to the end of another successful season, we invite community volunteers to join together for clean up time on Saturday, October 14th, 9:00 to 12:00 noon. Anyone who has participated in this event knows that working together in the park is good fun and good exercise. It is a great chance to enjoy this beautiful place with friends and neighbours.  Feel free to take along some bulbs for planting. We suggest you bring along a rake and wear work gloves. Refreshments will be served. If it is raining, the close-up will take place the following Saturday at the same time.

Art in the Park welcomes all levels of painters, especially the beginner. Come on out for an enjoyable morning of painting with new and old friends, under the dappled canopy of the park. We also welcome those who enjoy watching art being created.
All are invited to an optional demo and free painting lesson in Plein Air landscape painting starting at 9:30 am to 10:30 am. In a workshop style, with local artist Julia Purcell, participants will learn to develop a well-built start for their painting by creating strong compositional thumbnails through the principles of Japanese notan and by using a view finder to shape a limited focus. There will be an explanation of the three properties of color and a discussion of how to implement a color strategy by using a limited palette in landscape painting. Bring your own painting materials e.g. acrylic or watercolor paint. Please include a sketch book and soft pencil such as an 8B. Using an easel is recommended. View finders will be provided. If you plan to participate in this lesson, we ask you to pre-register by emailing juliampurcell@gmail.com. Coffee and water provided. There is a washroom on site. Murchison Place Park is located among the trees at the corner of Trans Canada Highway and Clyde River Road.

Invitation to Clyde River residents from The Central Queens Wildlife Federation:

Clyde River

The Central Queens Wildlife Federation (CQWF) is currently executing a multi-year restoration plan for the Clyde River watershed. To date we have focused our efforts on the West Branch (Baltic Brook) and are expanding our efforts into the main branch this year.

The decision of the Government of PEI to construct the Cornwall Bypass will have a significant impact on the Clyde River watershed. As we are currently working in the watershed, CQWF was invited by the Government to provide advice and technical support during the planning and construction phases of the bypass.

We have identified a number of potential projects to protect and enhance the habitat, and we would like to obtain input from the community on these and other ideas to develop an overall vision for the watershed.

What would the residents of the Clyde River like to see? Is there a desire to restore the Acadian forest, develop nature trails and interpretive sites, create wetlands or other ideas? 

The meeting is scheduled for Jun 8th, 7:00 PM at the Riverview Community Centre and all are welcome to attend.

We will provide a brief overview of the projects we are considering and there will be an open forum to answer any questions as well as time for informal discussion.  We hope to see you there!
