The calendar and Spring have finally caught up with the Haliburton County Snowmobile Association. They have closed their 370 kilometers of trails in the county to all snowmobiling. The Association says current snow cover is too inconsistent and the marked lake routes are glare ice making it unsafe for proper control of a snowmobile.
It was the best season in recent years for the HCSA in terms of grooming hours and trail availability and a much later than normal season ending date. The HCSA had several highlights; a bridge dedication and rebuilding, supporting Dog Sled Races, Frostfest, and the first ever winter carnival at Stuart Baker Elementary School.
The HCSA wishes to thank its over 100 generous landowners for allowing the trails on their properties and the County’s many businesses for their support.

Inspired by grade 11 HHSS student Jurgen Shantz , over a dozen students have gathered outside the Dysart Municipal office to support action on Climate Change. A number of parents and citizens have also joined in. There are 25 people and growing.
The strike today will continue until 3 pm.
Jurgen was inspired by Greta Thunberg and the Fridays 4 Future movement that started in Sweden and has spread worldwide.
Jurgen plans to be outside the municipal office for at least 4 Fridays and, if support grows he’d like to continue until the end of the school year.
