Bonnechere Day July 13, 2019
Once again the Chapter was invited to deliver a program for Archaeology Day at Bonnechere Provincial Park.  This is an annual event for many of us who participated and had the pleasure of enjoying the many amenities of the park during the weekend.   Our collaboration with the Park and the Friends organization goes back more than twenty years!  The interest, enthusiasm and support we receive from staff and the campers is very much appreciated.
