The May 5th open house at the newly acquired Driftwood Cove property offers a chance to explore this incredible addition to Bruce Peninsula National Park. Members of the public will be invited to share their views about the future of the property, including what to do with the existing buildings.
Parks Canada and Bruce Trail Conservancy team members will be on hand to answer questions and provide a tour the property and buildings. Dress for the weather as some of the tour will take place outside.
