On Thursday November 29th we attended the NBMCA’s environmental award ceremony as proud recipients of the Dorothy Walford Memorial Award 2012 for our environmental work.
On Nov 28th 2012, with over 100 people we celebrated 10 years of success! We’d like to extend a huge thank you to all those who attended and to all of our silent auction donees. It was a joy to to get to spend more personal time with our membership and receive ideas from our community on what they’d like Greening Nipissing to do in the coming future.
The silent auction was a hit! Thanks to all the businesses and individuals who donated time, money and items to our event on Nov. 28th. Great fun was had by all!

The Bike Fix Station is located at the intersection of Memorial Drive and Stanley St; where the Kinsmen bike path and the Kate Pace Way meet in Lee Park.
The Bike Fix Station Public Work Stand is a free to use bike repair stand that caters to the needs of the urban cyclist. Aircraft cable permanently tethers eight common bicycle tools. Its composed of a work station, hand air pump and a QR code to online instructions.
Additionally, the Bike Fix Station Public Work Stand is an element of the soon to be launched Chippewa EcoPath, a community initiative to restore and enhance natural values and heritage of the creek through stewardship and education. The EcoPath, funded by RBC Bluewater Project will highlight the history, ecosystem and stewardship of the creek through interpra-desks, website and kiosks.
Biking is a great way to exercise while helping the environment.You will reduce your carbon emissions and prevent run off and water contamination from gas and oil drops or spills.
Mountain Equipment Cooperative’s Access and Activity Grant 2012 graciously supported this project with funds to purchase the Bike Fix Sation Public Work Stand.
Greening Nipissing would like to thank all of their partners including Greenspace North Bay,Nipissing Environment Watch, the North Bay-Mattawa Conservation Authority, Chippewa EcoPath Steering Committee, and City of North Bay Parks and Recreation Department for their support of this project
