Hazel Bird Nature Reserve – Members Only

2022-08-13 @ 10:00 AM 2:00 PM

Historically, the Rice Lake Plains were covered with tall
grass prairies and oak savannah. Dominated by massive
black and white oak, grasses like big bluestem, Indian
grass and switchgrass grew more than two metres high
and a diverse range of wildflowers blossomed. Grassland
birds and other rare species, including eastern hog-nosed snake, depend on this rare habitat to survive. The speaker from our April meeting, Val Deziel, and some of her volunteers will lead us on a tour of this rare ecosystem. There is the option to walk the moderate 4.1 km loop or the easy and short 0.3 km section. Bring binoculars, camera, water, bug spray and sunscreen. It’s recommended to wear closed-toe shoes, long pants, and a hat. To register contact [email protected] after June 6 and indicate if you prefer the longer trail. Accessibility: Easy to moderate
