Photo Monday: Glen Session


This past Saturday, the Ontario Access Coalition participated in an Earth day event hosted by the Friends of the Glen, along with other groups like the Bruce Trail Club and “Leave No Trace.” On behalf of the OAC, about a dozen boulderers volunteered their time to work with the naturalists of the Niagara Parks Commission to help take an inventory of the spring wildflowers that grow on top of the boulders. The event was a great success. Climbers enthusiastically learned about the flora and fauna of the glen and the Parks staff were equally excited to learn about bouldering! Speaking of which, we did manage to do some “pebble wrestling” for a few hours at the end of the day. Here are some photos (taken using my latest camera gadget, a monopod!):

Ce Samedi passé, le Ontario Access Coalition a participé à un événement pour le jour de la Terre organisé par l’association “The Friends of the Glen”, avec d’autre groupe comme “Bruce Trail Club” et “Leave No Trace”. Représentant l’OAC, une douzaine de boulderers ont travaillés avec les naturalistes de Niagara Parks Commission pour aider à inventorier les plantes qui poussent sur les blocs. L’événement fût un grand succès! Les grimpeurs étaient enthousiastes d’apprendre à propos de la faune et la flore du Glen, et le personnel du Parc était également très motiver d’en apprendre plus sur notre sport. Parlant de bloc, nous avons quand même réussis à grimper quelques heures après (et j’ai pu tester mon tout nouveau gadget: monopod!):
