Canoe/Kayak from Squirrel Creek Conservation Area

2023-07-15 @ 8:00 AM 12:00 PM

Join Patrick Kramer for a paddle along a beautiful section of the Otonabee River. There is a big concentration of wild space between Whitfield Landing and Squirrel Creek CA,
including undevelopable flood plains. We will focus on nature observation during our paddle upriver to about Whitfield Landing and back. Along the way we will enjoy the scenery in Darling Wildlife Area (ORCA), Stewart Woods Forest (ORCA) and possibly check out the marsh in Squirrel Creek CA (ORCA). Last summer there was a pair of red-shouldered hawks in Darling Wildlife Area. The main cove of Darling Wildlife Area is where Baxter Creek joins with the river. BYOB (bring your own canoe or kayak) and all legally required equipment (life jacket for each person and a safety kit for each boat). Bring water, snacks, binoculars, and camera. Please note that the Trent-Severn Waterway will be operating and there is the possibility of large watercraft making large waves. Meet at Squirrel Creek CA boat launch at 8:00 a.m. Washrooms are available in the park. To register and for further information contact Patrick at [email protected]
