GET OUTSIDE!

The Shaw Woods Outdoor Education Centre (Ottawa Valley) has been wonderfully successful in attracting many visitors and virtual visitors responding to the excellent outreach that they’re doing.

One way that CFA/CIF has offered support for this worthy program is through sponsoring the lookout deck high on the ridge overlooking the river and forest. Our contribution is being acknowledged with the mounting of this plaque.
