Visit the Pearson wetland by canoe. Join us as we paddle up the river to the small lake with the floating mat shoreline. We will lift over two beaver dams, listen for birds, and look for signs of otters, turtles, and waterfowl. Songbirds are plentiful along the river and we will stop for a side trip hike to the talus slope. Weather permitting and if participants are interested, we may walk from the lake across the floating mat into the black spruce forest on the north shore of the lake. Should we decide to do that, participants should be prepared for wet feet and legs. The outing would be the entire morning concluding in mid-afternoon. Bring a lunch. Both the talus slope visit and a possible walk across the floating mat represents a moderate to high level of exertion.
Join Marian to see what has happening along the Pigeon River Border at Middle Falls. At the moment the river has reached over the banks to cover the old campground road to the falls. This may give one a chance to view the area from the road and see a different view of the generally picturesque waterfall. Meet between Scotiabank and Tim Horton’s on west Arthur Street at 9:00 am. Contact Marian at 577-1324 or email email@example.com.
Join Susan Robinson for this workshop/field trip to check on nesting bluebirds and their broods as part of TBFN's Bluebird Recovery Program. The outing involves a fair bit of travel to various locations to see if the bluebird boxes are being used and viewing the nest boxes. Meet at the Movati Athletic Club parking lot at the West Arthur Street Mall. To register, contact Susan at 344-1739.
Join Allan Gilbert as we look for elusive warblers at Mink Mountain. This is an all-day event to explore the trails and treasures of Mink Mountain and its birds. Dress appropriately for the weather and bring a lunch.
We will meet at 7:30 am at the Movati Athletic Club parking lot, near Scotiabank on Arthur Street.
Join us on a hike to the Kam Valley Reserve near Stanley. This 30 acre reserve has extensive frontage on the Whitefish and Kam Rivers and remains in a natural state with no trails, except those made by deer or beaver.
Meet at the Movati parking lot (area close to Scotia Bank) at 9 am Saturday August 20, 2022. From there we will drive past Stanley to a parking area on Sideen Rd, which runs off Highway 588 about a kilometer past the Stanley bridge. It’s about 20 minutes from the meeting point. From there we will navigate the bush to the edge of the Whitefish River and explore both the river bank and inland. In the past, several notable plant species are expected and usually there is at least one in the group who can identify them.
