Nephton Mine Hawkwatch

April 21 @ 9:00 AM 3:00 PM

Join Cathy Douglas and Dave Milsom on a hawkwatch at Nephton Mine in North Kawartha Township. There’s a possibility of seeing various hawks, eagles, cranes, and many duck and geese species as they make their way north. Our vehicles will be parked at the gate to the mine where we will be greeted by Covia Canada staff. Participants will board a school bus and be taken to three overlook sites within the mine, where we will sit and watch the northern migration of the various species. If migration is slow we will be walking around near the overlooks in order to search for other passerines. Things to bring include your lunch, a chair, binoculars, your scope (if you have one), and rubber boots as the site can be very muddy. Dress according to the weather. Please note there are no washroom facilities at the various overlooks. To register email Cathy after April 6 at [email protected]

Accessibility: easy to moderate.

Sunday, April 21 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. 20 participants
