Leaders: Bev McBride and Dave Moore
Meet: NCC Parking Lot P1 – by the picnic shelter near the shore. There is also parking on the east side of Rifle Range Road before you enter the waterfront parking lot. If you park there it is a short walk toward the river to the meeting place. 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.
Description: Come and see what has changed since our last visit six months ago in early June. 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. Dress for the weather! Note, we will not be entering DND property or going on the dyke (causeway).
