Grey Highlands Secondary Students have built and installed six sign kiosks to help visitors experience some of Grey County’s finest waterfalls and greatest views.
The kiosks are located at access points to Walters Falls, McGowan Falls, the Holstein Dam, Old Baldy Conservation Area, Indian Falls Conservation Area and Eugenia Falls Conservation Area.
“The skillful work of the students will help guide visitors to some of the County’s most breathtaking waterfalls,” said Bryan Plumstead, Manager of Economic Development and Tourism with Grey County. “Getting involved in your community while learning valuable life skills – isn’t that what high school should be all about?”
Students completed the project for Gerald Mayne’s construction class. It was jointly funded by Grey County and Regional Tourism Organization 7 (RTO7), also known as BruceGreySimcoe. Grey Sauble and Saugeen Valley Conservations worked with Grey County staff on key sign content such as information, mapping and location.
“We’re very thankful to all of the property owners for welcoming the new signs on their land,” added Plumstead.
The project is reminiscent of 2014 when Grey Highland students built and installed signs at paddling access points in Grey County.
