Ontario Nature-2020 Christmas Bird Count

No experience necessary — bring your fingers, eyes and binoculars if you have them.

After a short training session, participants will head outside to count up the birds they see — contributing to a national database that has tracked bird populations over a long period of time.

This is a rain or shine event so dress appropriately. Bring a lunch, beverages and snacks.

Stay at the end of the day for a social hour with refreshments and the day’s results.

Meet: Park Office by 8:30 a.m

Cost: Daily vehicle permit.

FAB Trails Festival

Join us outside all weekend for a series of guided and self-directed hikes. The Trails Festival will explore some of the facets that make this region a UNESCO biosphere. The first day is dedicated to learning more about the work of local land trusts while visiting some of the properties they steward. The second day will be mostly self-directed, as we visit some of the Biosphere's Amazing Places. On day three, we will join some local bird enthusiasts and later that morning we will head out to learn more about our local reptiles and amphibians.
