Verona is a unique village. It is located next to the Cameron Bog. Geologically speaking, this is where the limestone to the south meets the Canadian shield to the north, resulting in a 5,000 acre wetland - prime growing conditions for cattails and a rich asssortment of wildlife. The Verona Cattail Festival is recognizing the wonders of our local environment and this year will hold a special Saturday event to celebrate the environment. "Cameron's Cattail Centre" will be an exhibition held in the Verona Lions Hall, August 11 from 11 am to 4 pm. There will be games, live acts, displays, demonstrations and hands on activities to excite and interest both young and old alike. Turtle shows, worm exhibits, wetland games, virtual bog walks are just a few of the activities that will be featured. The Festival Committee is also hosting a summer of contests, environmentally themed, for the children with prizes being awarded at the festival. For all the details visit
