Spring Birding in the Catchacoma Old Growth Forest – Members Only
May 21 @ 8:00 AM – 11:00 AM
The Catchacoma Old Growth Forest, located in the Northern
Kawarthas, is well known for its giant eastern hemlocks (some of
which are over 300 years old) as well as its numerous moss-
covered granite boulders, lichens and fungi. It is also a sanctuary
for many bird and animal species. This outing, led again by
Stewart MacDonald, will focus on searching for spring migrants including warblers and other songbirds known to breed and pass through the Kawarthas. The meeting place will be the Forest Parking Lot off Hwy 507. Stewart will provide more details upon registration. The outing is on uneven and occasional muddy trails and would be considered of moderate difficulty. Good walking footwear is recommended. Participants should dress for the weather of the day and be prepared for the arrival of spring insects. Please e-mail Stewart at [email protected] to register after March 4 and preferably before May 1, or call Sue at 705-559-2061.
