EscarpAction will celebrate the Jessup’s Falls region with a BBQ and exhibits on Saturday May 13, 2017, 10.00 am to 6.00 pm at 6560 County Road 17, Plantagenet, Ontario (1 km east of the Jessup’s Falls bridge).
The festival will showcase local businesses, artists and artisans. Displays will introduce you to the fascinating nature and history of the region.
The event is free but donations are always welcome.
EscarpAction is a local non-profit that strives to protect our fragile environment and promote our region. The Jessup’s Falls escarpment is a remarkable limestone land formation with a unique ecosystem. Unfortunately, what makes it so special also makes it very sensitive to surface water contamination.
Further information on EscarpAction may be obtained from www.escarpaction.ca.
Our goal is to highlight all that the region has to offer and increase awareness of how sensitive the water table below the escarpment is to contamination. Visitors will be able to learn about our region while nibbling on regional fare. Admission is free and proceeds from some sales go towards the “protect the escarpment” fund.
There will be two silent auctions, a fossil box for young rock hounds, entertainment, and a wonderful opportunity for the community to learn to love Jessup’s Falls as much as we do!
