Description:    The Mill Race Trail is an easy walk, for the most part on flat level ground. You will be able to feed Black-capped Chickadees from the hand, with a very good chance that White-breasted Nuthatches will join them. We often see three species of woodpecker, Golden-crowned Kinglet and a variety of sparrows are usually present. The berry crop provides great deal of food for Cedar Waxwings and American Robins that spend the winter here. Northern Cardinal is common. American Beavers have been very active and you will see the results of their industriousness. We frequently have excellent, prolonged views of Muskrat and from time to time White-tailed Deer and American Mink. At the half way point we will visit the Eco Café in St. Jacobs to have a coffee and use the washrooms.
Dress according to the weather, bring your binoculars, snacks if you think you need them, and lots of enthusiasm.

Registration is required by contacting David.
