Snowy Owl Outing

Where: South west of Arthur
When: Sunday 16 Feb, 2020
Meeting Place: “Winner’s” parking lot, Georgetown **(see note below)
Departure Time: 11:30 a.m.


Since the Owls typically become active mid to late afternoon, we will leave Georgetown at 11:30am, and we will stay until dusk. We will spend most of the time driving around, but also some time out of the vehicles, so dress warmly, and bring hot drinks and snacks if you like.

** For those members who live north or west of the Georgetown area, we will make a pit-stop at the Tim Hortons in Arthur sometime around 12:45 to 1pm, so you can meet us there if that works better for you.
FYI, the Tim Hortons is located beside the gas station at the intersection of Hwy 109 and Hwy 6 in Arthur.

There have been lots of Snowy Owl sightings already this winter, so our chances are pretty good, and also other winter birds such as Rough-legged Hawks, Horned Larks and Snow Buntings have been reported in the area.
Please note that the weather looks good for Sunday, but will be cancelled if it looks like conditions would make driving unsafe.

If you did not sign up for the outing at our monthly meeting, you MUST RSVP by email to Ian Jarvie at auldscot1@cogeco.ca so that you can be contacted if plans change.

Don’t miss out on the fun!

We have one or more outings every month throughout the year, guided by the most experienced naturalists in our club. The outings will be fairly casual affairs, meaning… you won’t have a lot of advance notice. We’ll announce the details at each meeting, often along the lines of “hey I’m going out to do/see this next weekend, anyone want to come?”

We’ll follow-up with a club email, and post the details here, on Facebook, and on Twitter.

If you can’t make a club meeting, make sure you  sign up for our newsletter to stay in the loop.

Note: For liability reasons, you must be a fully paid member of the Halton North Peel Naturalist Club, and you must have our registration form completed,  to participate in our field outings. Please join!
