This page will be updated as we build our events program. We'll try to include not only our own events but those of other stakeholders where the focus is the BMBCL.  Events will also continue to be listed on our Facebook page and via direct invitation. 

PLEASE NOTE: Some events may be limited to 'members only' - another good reason to join the Friends of Blue Mountain - Birch Cove Lakes Society!

We're all hoping that we will soon be able to get together in person once again, maybe for a hike to Blue Mountain. However, in the meantime, let's get ready - there's a lot of work to get on with as we continue with our mission:


"To support and promote the creation and development of

the Blue Mountain-Birch Cove Lakes Regional Park and to encourage

the stewardship and appropriate use of the area"
