The snow was not so helpful for the invasive plant removal we had planned to do in a Kitchener natural area for our monthly project on the last Saturday afternoon of the month. Josh Shea turned that project into another -- we learned about bird identification basics from Josh and Teen-ornithologist Linden and had a short hike at Huron Natural Area. Although the birds weren't plentiful, it was good practice for us as we've been invited to help at the Christmas Bird Count for Kids at 'rare' on January 12.
Thanks to the enthusiastic Teens for coming out, to their parents for getting them there, and to Josh and Linden for sharing their know-how. We're not meeting in December but are looking forward to more volunteer work and learning in the new year.
