Hike & Cruise Events

Take part in one of our upcoming events!

We are a science-based not-for-profit charity, and a lot of our time and energy goes into research.

But, we also want to share what we’ve learned!

This year we are hosting two events.

Please join us. (On-line registration and ticket sales below)

We gratefully acknowledge the financial support provided by Explorer’s Edge.


Learn all about our ASHMuskoka research with our scientists plus partners from Trent University. Join us for a guided 1 km hike at Camp Big Canoe (Bracebridge) where we have test forests to study the addition of calcium wood ash and how it impacts our trees. Learn about the tools used to study forest health, see our test plots and do some ash addition to help with forest restoration.

After the hike, enjoy some live entertainment and then a Q & A with Dr. Norman Yan and partners from Trent University.

Hike tickets are $5 for children and $15 for adults. Click for more info, registration and tickets


We’ve partnered with the Peerless (Sunset Cruises) to add a special September cruise with FOTMW board member and scientist Norman Yan. It’s a fun yet educational environmental cruise. Guests have the opportunity to dip nets into Lake Rosseau. They then pull them up and learn about some of the miniature creatures that work hard to keep our lakes clean.

Cruise tickets are $65 per person. Click for more info, registration and tickets.


Friends of the Muskoka Watershed’s focus is to use real science to research solutions to issues impacting Muskoka watersheds. Real Science costs real money, so all donations are appreciated at fotmw.org/donate
