Don Scallen: Wetland Wildlife.
Frisky Frogs, Salacious Salamanders and more.

In 2016 Don spoke to the club about vernal pool life. This presentation will include new images from vernal pools but will also touch on the fascinating diversity of life that inhabits permanent wetlands.

Spring Birding at Thickson Wood

Sunday May 19, 2019
Thickson Wood, Lynde Shores Conservation Area and Cranberry Marsh
If I had only one day in the spring to go birding, this is where I would go. These locations provide a wide variety of habitats including mature forest, meadows, swamps, marshes, old fields and Lake Ontario and its shoreline. The result is a diverse collection of bird species, especially during spring migration. Scheduling on the Sunday of the Victoria Day holiday weekend has resulted, so far, in trouble-free driving to and from these Whitby birding hot spots. Bring a lunch, water, hat, sunscreen, binoculars, etc.
Call Ray Blower (519) 853-0171 for starting location and times.

Woody vegetation removal at Forks of the Credit Provincial Park
Meet in the main parking lot west of McLaren Road between Forks of the Credit Road and Charleston Sideroad in Caledon.
Contact Don Scallen at dscallen@cogeco.ca for more information.
Rain will cancel this event. Please watch your inbox.

Stay tuned. More outings will be coming, along with Monday night walks..
