Thanks to the generosity of the McLaren family the Friends award two bursaries: one to a graduating student of the North Addington Education Centre, Cloyne, and one to a summer student working at the Park. Their purpose is to support students who are in a field of post -secondary study that generally furthers the Values, Vision, and Mission of The Friends.

The 2016 recipients are: Lucas Parks Delyea and Summer Andrew. Lucas is focusing on the cultural heritage of the area while Summer is taking Fish & Wildlife Management at Fleming College.

Both of these recipients are impressive, talented young people, worthy of our support.
