Extra Information: Lily Oak is one of Grey County’s largest managed forests, consisting of a mixture of hardwood and conifer plantations. The old building foundations that are located along the logging trail are remnants of barns from 1872, when this property was used as farmland. The spring creek that can be found at the north end of the forest would have made this location highly suitable for farming activities. This property became a managed forest in 1954 when Grey County took ownership over the lands.  

OSFN Indoor Meetings are normally held on the second Thursday of the month at 7:00 p.m. at the Bayshore Community Centre, 1900 3rd Ave E Owen Sound. There are no Indoor Meetings in July and August. Please see the individual event listings below for more details.

We invite speakers with a wide range of expertise from Grey/Bruce and other parts of the province. These evenings are open to the public. The auditorium is open by 6:30. The meeting gets under way at 7:00, and may include brief announcements by other organizations as well as OSFN club activities, club business, social time, nature sightings and reports.

The club also offers a full schedule of outdoor activities during the year. Through these outings, members learn more about the birds, plants, mammals and geology of this part of Ontario. We also keep a protective eye on our precious natural areas.
