Meet: NCC Parking Lot P1 – by the picnic shelter. There is also parking on the east side of Rifle Range Road before you enter the waterfront parking lot. To get there, take Carling Avenue west from Moodie Drive. Turn right on Rifle Road (signs for Shirley’s Bay). Parking lots are at the end of the road before the turn into the DND property.
We will walk around the various habitats of this interesting spot, including the river shoreline and nearby wooded areas. Be prepared to cover a few kilometres, slowly. Plants, birds, geology, along with other wildlife and human impacts are among the features worth checking out. Bring along your curiosity, knowledge (optional!) and favourite field observation gadgets and books. Rain or shine. Biting insects are possible.
