Stone Carving Project At Uxbridge Historical Centre

Tue. 4 Jul, 2017 10:00 am - Thu. 19 Oct, 2017 4:00 pm

July to October (Tues., Wed., Thur.)
Stone Carving Project At Uxbridge Historical Centre
Artist Fly Freeman will be carving on site: July to October, Tuesday and Wednesday Mornings (10am - noon), Thursday afternoons (1pm - 4pm).
The Arts and Visual Enhancement Committee (AVEC) has selected artist Fly Freeman to undertake the “Uxbridge Story in Stone” project, a massive stone carving that will be installed in downtown Uxbridge. Four carved panels will tell the story of the history of the town and the establishment of our trails.
The artist is on site three days a week working on one of the four 800-lb. blocks of stone. Fly Freeman brings a wealth of experience to the Historical Centre as she shapes the blocks of Indiana Limestone with the same type of hand-held tools that have been used by stone masons for generations. There are no compressors, power tools or electric grinders to create noise or dust. The work area is roped off but the public can easily view and converse with Fly in complete safety.
A special, free introduction to stone carving is available Thursday evenings at 6:30pm. Stone, tools and safety glasses will be provided. All are welcome and no registration is required.
Uxbridge Historical Centre, 7239 Concession 6, Uxbridge. The Centre is open for tours June 4 - Sept. 25, 10am - 4pm, Wednesday to Sunday (closed on holidays).

Ontario Mosses and Liverworts and Their Role in Environmental Ecosystems

Sat. 30 Sep, 2017 10:00 am

Ontario Mosses and Liverworts and Their Role in Environmental Ecosystems
Date: Saturday, September 30, 2017
Start Time: 10 a.m.
Location: Room 2015, Simcoe Hall, Lakehead University, 500 University Ave., Orillia
Instructors: David Bradley, Natural Heritage Information Centre, Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry, and Bob Bowles, Coordinator of the Ontario Master Naturalist Program
Description: There are 548 species of mosses, 172 species of liverworts, and 4 species of hornworts recorded in Ontario. This introductory level workshop will briefly describe the life cycle of bryophytes in comparison to that of vascular plants, and present a general overview of the ecological requirements of these understudied species. In 2001, Dr. Frank Cook compiled a list of 239 species of mosses in Simcoe County. In this workshop, we will group the species on that list by habitat, location, leaf shape, leaf midrid, and special features, to create smaller groups. Following two presentations in the classroom, we will visit some sites close to the university campus to learn how to identify the many species of mosses that we have in Ontario. We will move beyond the historical, technical study of mosses and liverworts using compound microscopes to assess habitat, leaf shape and characteristics in order to group the species into smaller groups of species that look very similar. We will use hand lenses and microscopes, but only on the final stages of identification. This friendly approach to the study of mosses and liverworts will enable participants to understand the ecological value of these plants and how they can be effectively incorporated into home landscaping in ways that are more environmentally friendly than tuft grass lawns.
Fee: $75 +HST
