Birding Hotspot – Otonabee Gravel Pits

2023-08-13 @ 8:00 AM 10:30 AM

Steve Paul will lead a mid-summer tour of the Otonabee Gravel Pits. This site is a former gravel pit that is managed by Otonabee Conservation and it is one of the top birding hotspots in the Peterborough area. The scenery is beautiful. There are great views of the ponds and the walk takes you through a large meadow and a forest. We will be watching for shorebirds and early migrant activity and will hopefully see some butterflies. Bring your camera and binoculars and dress for the weather. There is poison ivy along the trails so rubber boots are a good idea. To register please contact [email protected] after June 4.

Accessibility: Easy to moderate

Sunday, August 13 8:00 to 10:30 a.m.
