The Linear Trail, Cambridge

Monday, September 28 @ 9:00 am - 11:30 am

Bald Eagle

COVID has presented many challenges, not the least of which is our ability to conduct outings safely and in a manner that can be enjoyed by all participants. Social distancing is a paramount concern, of course, and that reality alone places restrictions on the number of members who can join together for an outing.

David Gascoigne proposes a bird walk with a limit of six members including himself and Miriam who acts as our photographer, meaning that four others could join in. People who live together could be considered one “unit” for purposes of social distancing so the limit of four participants is flexible. The same walk will be offered five times in a week, on a first come first served basis for each date. Prior registration is required and if you have a close friend or family member who is not a member of the club they would be welcome to take part, subject to usual liability waivers of course.

Evening walks are no longer feasible as the hours of daylight continue to diminish each day.

These outings are predicated on safety measures and social distance restrictions for COVID-19 not becoming more dire. If conditions change the decision to hold the walks may need to be revisited.

The Linear Trail, Cambridge

Date: Monday 28 September

Time: 9:00 am

Location: Meet at the parking lot on Chopin Drive, Cambridge

Duration: Approximately 2.5 hours

Leader: David Gascoigne   email: david_gascoigne@yahoo.com   Phone: 519 725-0866 Cell: 226 747-7299

Description: The Linear Trail is an easy walk, for the most part on flat level ground. We will probably not complete the entire length of the trail but will target a round trip of about two and a half hours, covering 3 – 4 km round trip. We have an excellent chance to enjoy the tail end of passerine migration and to encounter waterfowl, ducks, Bald Eagles – and who knows what else? Regardless of the birds, it will be an excellent opportunity for some of us to connect with each other. Be sure to register early. The last set of walks were fully booked within a few hours of posting them.

Prior registration is required. Please contact David to register.
