Once on the property, make sure a stop at the Thompson family cemetery situated on the southern boundary of the picturesque landscape is included in your visit.  Hiking trails are situated throughout the property and provide the opportunity to walk through the Carolinian forest, view the river or enjoy the butterfly meadow.

Ruthven Park National Historic Site

Thank you to Hobbitstee Wildlife Refuge for chosing us as the venue for your fundraising event on Earth Day yesterday! We're thrilled it was a success and that all had a wonderful time 😊We had an awesome day today as we celebrated #EarthDay by way of having a brunch and fun event at Ruthven Park National Historic Site.

We thank everyone who came out and supported our event. A special thank you to the title sponsors Ontario Wildlife Removal Inc and CJ Cooper Automotive. We also want to thank our longtime sponsors Lush Cosmetics North America for making us all happy with Lush Swag Bags.

We thank Tracy from Crazeepaint Airbrushing and Custom Paint for donating her time painting faces and Teal's Pure Pork Sausage for donating the sausage.

We are grateful for having such a wonderful work relationship with the people from Ruthven Park.

It was great to see the folks from the Haldimand Stewardship Council out as well. They had lots of information and seedling trees for everyone.

We used Personal Catering and loved working with them. They were very flexible and easy to get along with. The food was absolutely wonderful.

A special thank you to Hazel from A Bone's Throw for helping us in organizing this event.

All in all we had a great day! Thank you to all who attended.
