The Halton/North Peel Naturalist Club welcomes new members of all ages and experience levels who are interested in nature and conservation. Whether you’re an experienced naturalist or a beginner who loves nature, we invite you to join us.
SNOWY OWLS Make Headlines Across
Although Snowy Owls have been recorded to have arrived as early as the end of October, arrival at the end of November to mid December is more common. This article examines the mid November arrival this year, and the impact on this marvelous species of owl.
“Snowy Owls and Bad Fortune”
If you were unable to join us for the outing to Silvercreek to observe Brook Trout, here is some video from a club member.
Tuesday April 10, 2018 – 7:30 p.m.
Josh Sayers of Ontario Badgers will tell us about a mammal that most Ontarian’s don’t realize exists in the province.
Bark and Buds
Saturday, March 24. 2018 after 1:30 p.m.
Tree identification at Terra Cotta Conservation Area. Almost every species of tree that grows naturally in northern Halton Region can be found at TCCA. We’ll take a walk around and see how many species we can ID by their bark, buds and form.
A nice opportunity to advance your knowledge of these important organisms. Of course, we’ll welcome the pleasant distractions of birds and other wildlife!
Difficulty level: easy but be prepared to walk for a couple of hours.
Leader: Don Scallen
