Dorothy Crysler Bird Club

Saturday December 18, 2021

Time: 9:30am - 10:30am

Location: Zoom meeting.

Join Curator Andrea Wilson as each month we learn about our wild avian friends, their habits and habitats. This will not only help you identify birds, but you will learn about migration, nesting, environmental needs, species at risk and more. This is a collaborative study group, where participants will share as we grow knowledge together.  

The club is named for Dorothy Crysler, a remarkable local artist, journalist, author and birder! This club takes her cue, as she was "the messenger not the expert". This group is for anyone, new or established as a birder. 

When you register a zoom meeting link will be emailed to you.

Blue Mountain Pottery Expo

Saturday July 23, 2022

Location: Craigleith Community Centre.

A celebration of this iconic Canadian pottery, born from the clay on the Blue Mountain. This weekend event brings together experts, collectors, filmmakers, designers, pottery employees, antique dealers, museums, curators, craftspeople and you to discover the charm, history and importance of Blue Mountain Pottery.

This pottery was established in the early 1950’s by Jozo Weider, as part of his business portfolio at Blue Mountain. The pottery was a huge success, providing the economic foundation for the Blue Mountain Ski Resort and becoming well-known around the world. Jozo sold the pottery in the late 1960’s and it has continued to grow.

More Details Coming Soon!
