Otonabee Conservation says that Warsaw Caves Conservation Area will be closed on September 17th and 18th as members of the Canadian Armed Forces will be conducting routine training in there.
All training will be limited to the caves area and therefore public access to this area will be restricted during this time period.
People in the area of the park may see members of the military carrying weapons as they undergo training activities.
Live ammunition will not be present, but blank ammunition may be used during training, which will be done in accordance with Canadian Armed Forces safety measures.

The Pink in the Rink 2020 media kickoff took place Tuesday (September 10th) at Kelsey’s Restaurant, and the revenue goal was announced at $72,000.
The Honourary Chairs for the 11th Annual Pink in the Rink are Mike Martone and Ian Armstrong. The event takes place February 1st as the Peterborough Petes take on the Oshawa Generals at the Memorial Centre.
As Peterborough Petes GM Mike Oke said it best at the media launch, the goal is to take down Oshawa in the Pink in the Rink game—and take down cancer.
Since its inception in 2010, Pink in the Rink has raised an incredible $701,249.04 for women’s cancer research.
