Dogs and bogs fundraiser this Satur­day

Stanstead Journal - - NEWS BRIEFS -

Join the Fron­tier An­i­mal So­ci­ety (FAS) Satur­day, Septem­ber 1, 2012, 9 a.m., for a nar­rated walk through the Mar­ling­ton Bog (3km) in honor of the late Al­bert El­liot, the “Bog Man.”

Al­bert spent un­told hun­dreds of hours work­ing to pre­serve the bog, build­ing a trail and board­walk so that it could be ap­pre­ci­ated first-hand by more peo­ple, and ed­u­cat­ing vis­i­tors about the plant and an­i­mal species found within its bor­ders. (Town­ships Her­itage Web mag­a­zine)

Meet us at the bog en­trance lo­cated 300 m off Rte. 247 on Chemin Davis in Og­den (red metal gate). Park­ing just off the road. Light lunch to fol­low.

Fundraiser for the Fron­tier An­i­mal So­ci­ety and the Mar­ling­ton Bog. Please call us at 819-876-7747 for more in­for­ma­tion, about sug­gested do­na­tion per per­son or to have your walk pledged by friends & fam­ily to help raise even more.
