Muskoka Conservancy wins “Most Outrageous Team” award at the 2016 Gravenhurst Winter Carnival Bed Races!

On Saturday, February 20th, Muskoka Conservancy volunteers competed in the annual bed race competition during the Gravenhurst Winter Carnival.

Our nature-themed bed, designed this year as a Common Loon, had custom knit loon hats on our runners, and a baby loon sitting on the back of the mother loon (also known as our bed!)…it’s no wonder we were the Most Outrageous Team award winners!

Thank you to our wonderful volunteers, Allyn Abbott and Rob Abbott for their hard work and creative bed design, and to runners Jan McDonnell, Allyn Abbott, Kristen Callow, and Sarah Strata for enduring the rainy weather to compete.
Thank you to all those who came out to cheer on our loons!

We look forward to defending our title again next year!
