Leader: Sarah Rabideau (nee Walton)
Meet: 9 a.m. at NCC Parking Lot 9 off Moodie Drive
Join Sarah to enjoy a morning hike in the woods in Stony Swamp to get an up-close and personal experience with some of Canada’s infamous winter songbirds – chickadees and nuthatches – in their race to prepare for winter. Best part – they eat from your hand! Once the thrill of bird feeding wears off (does it ever?) the hike will continue around the Jack Pine trail system, with opportunities to learn about about the seasonal changes in the forest system. Hikers are encouraged to continue onto the Beaver and Chipmunk loop systems (total of about 7 km). Bring snacks, water, plenty of peanuts and bird seed for our feathered friends, and a charged camera/phone to take plenty of fun photos and videos!
