    THUNDER BAY – LIVING – The Lakehead Region Conservation Authority (LRCA) will celebrate Silver Harbour Day on Saturday, August 15th 2015 at the Silver Harbour Conservation Area, which is one of five LRCA­ owned and operated Conservation Areas located on Lake Superior. The day begins at 9:30AM and runs until 2:30PM EDT.

    The schedule of events includes the Canadian Coast Guard vessel Cape Chaillon docking at 9:45AM and remaining on site for visitors to see and talk to the crew (weather permitting, and subject to search and rescue responsibilities); Skyline Falconry will be conducting a falconry presentation at 11:00AM and the Ministry of Natural Resources & Forestry (MNRF) will also be conducting a demonstration of their K-9 Unit at 1:00 p.m. Additionally, the Shuniah Fire and Rescue Services and the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) will be in attendance.

    Be sure to visit the LRCA’s interpretive table; the LRCA will also be teaching people about the unique geology of the Silver Harbour Area.

    “Silver Harbour Conservation Area is a hugely popular location for both local residents and boaters. We are proud to be able to offer this beautiful spot for people to enjoy, and Silver Harbour Day is a great way to invite other organizations to help share their messages alongside the LRCA,” says LRCA Chair Bill Bartley.

    Admission to the event is free of charge.
