5th Annual OPA Equipment Education and Golf Forum
On September 12th, 2014 OPA will be hosting our 5th Annual Equipment Education and Golf Forum at the beautiful Legends on the Niagara golf course in Niagara Falls.
Be an early bird and register to golf at a reduced rate!! Register by August 17th and pay just $125 per person to golf. (Wait until August 18th and you will pay $140 .. still a deal for a great day of fun in the Falls, but not as good a deal as the early birds get.)
Accommodations: Want to spend the evening before the golf event in Niagara Falls so you can just roll out of bed and head to the golf course on Friday? Or want to turn the golf event into a whole weekend of fun in the Falls? Special OPA pricing has been arranged with the Wyndham Garden Niagara Falls - but you have to book by August 18th! Call 1-800-263-2565 and request the Ontario Parks rate. Special rates are as follows: Thursday evening is $80 plus HST, Friday evening is $90 plus HST, and Saturday evening is $129 plus HST.

Legacy Garden Opening Ceremony
The Ontario Parks Association and the Niagara Parks Commission Association School of Horticulture Alumni Legacy Prairie Garden is the result of the 75th Anniversary celebrations for both organizations held in 2011. Four years of planning and fund raising have now resulted in a beautiful garden with a purpose. The huge decline of the Monarch Butterflies and the reduction of the bee population across North America reveals the value of profiling these issues and the support needed to return their numbers to what they were.
Thank you to all the donors and particularly Donna and Mike Milloy who not only donated but Mike’s firm GatemanMilloy Landscaping constructed phase one. An entrance feature will be unveiled outlining a description of the Garden with all the donor names during the Opening Ceremonies.
The excellent environmental message to visitors, the opportunities to learn and the noted Legacy is an admirable celebration of 75 years of horticultural excellence for the School of Horticulture and the Ontario Parks Association members.
Join us for the opening and ‘the turning over’ ceremonies of the project as the Garden is formally transferred to the Niagara Parks Commission on Saturday, September 13th at 1:00 pm. Details to follow!
