Time:    9:30am

Facilities:    Washrooms are not available.

Trail:    Foot paths are part of an established trail system. Terrain is basically level but winter conditions can make trails bumpy and slippery

Leader:    Fraser Gibson; fn.gib@sympatico.ca; 519 576 9287

Description:    Come for a stroll around the Laurel Creek Nature Centre property while we search for signs of animal activity including tracks, scat, nests, etc. This 47 ha (120-acre) property includes mature woods, a swamp, stream, pond and open fields. We’ll hope for an overnight dusting of fresh snow to add sparkle to our walk. Dress warmly and bring binoculars.

Pre-registration is required. Contact Fraser to register. Non members are welcome but they will need to sign an insurance waiver.
