Well, it’s been a long, cold, difficult winter.  Let us put the Spring back in your step.  The Cobourg Ecology Garden is about to bust out in bloom.  Snow Drops, Scilla, Lily of the Valley, Violets, Trilliums and many more Spring flowers...heralding another season, another reason, to live, love, laugh and be happy.

The Garden has expanded over the last few years.  We now have an accessible path, benches and picnic tables, including one that is wheelchair accessible.  While strolling through the Garden, you'll come across the new Canadian Rose bed and the Shady Nook, the Hügel with its ever-changing flora and the new land sculpture.

The Garden attracts many visitors.  Some enjoy a picnic or a catch-up chat with family and friends.  Teachers bring their classes, artists set up easels, and many visit our pop-up library.  Drama students practice their lines or songs, photographers click away, and wedding parties grace our space.  We welcome all of you and hope that you are spreading the word about this haven by the boardwalk. 

The Cobourg Ecology Garden is turning 20!

Join us for an afternoon of refreshments and music.

Sunday, July 17, 2:00 p.m. - 4:00 p.m.

In 2015, we conducted a survey of the plants growing on the sandy West Beach.  It was done as part of our educational programme, so that people on the boardwalk could learn what is growing around them.

This is a work in progress.  We have identified the main species, but there are some more plants to add this summer, especially the grasses. The current surevy is now available for download in pdf format complete with photos of each of the species. Download here.

Below is a table of contents of the survey

All presentations in the series held at the Rotary Room, Cobourg Public Library. Admission free. Donations appreciated.
