WRN Kids – Mill Race Trail St Jacobs

Mill Race Trail

On Saturday March 30, 2024, WRN Kids went on a birding hike along the Mill Race Trail.

David Gascoigne led us down the trail and we saw many interesting things.

We saw woodpeckers, nuthatches, cardinals, and mallards.

We also saw some mammals. There was a mink and then a muskrat swimming along side us in the water of the mill race.

Some of the group went all the way to St Jacobs and enjoyed a snack at the Eco Café.

A big thank you to David for leading us on this wonderful outing.
