On Monday, May 9, the Ontario environmental commissioner, Dr. Dianne Saxe, did a walking tour of the Fletcher Wildlife Garden. FWG volunteers Sandy Garland and Ted Farnworth, along with Diane Lepage (OFNC president) pointed out many aspects of the garden including, the amphibian pond, the butterfly meadow, and the new woods to the commissioner.

Our efforts with dog strangling vine, insect hotels, and some early spring flowers also were part of the tour. The Commissioner was very complimentary about the many things she saw, and the work of our volunteers who make FWG what it is today.
