Spring 2019 Update
Spring is here and to date she has been very generous with the season’s requisite rain showers, but quite stingy with her sunshine and warmth. However, the trilliums are blooming, the ferns are unfurling, the lake levels are continuing to rise and our seasonal feathered friends are visiting once again. The Friends of Oliphant executive have been busy over the winter and early spring planning this upcoming season’s events that we hope will engage our community in matters of interest to all those who live, cottage and visit here.
“I have a cottage in Oliphant. I maintain my own graphs of water levels to entertain myself. With the summer season here, I thought followers of this web site might be interested having a look at them.” - Grant Simmie
On August 11th this summer, Friends of Oliphant held their 9th annual educational event “Oliphant Matters”. Our 1st presenter, Brian Robin (below) entertained and educated the attendees with his amazing nature photography.
