Wilkins Regional Park, Sunday June 12, 2016, 8:30 a.m. start
Heather Meier will lead a birding/nature walk through Wilkins Regional Park. Located along the Nechako River, the trails are a gentle 3 km loop through a variety of forest habitats. We will look and listen for the large variety of breeding birds, check out the enormous cottonwood trees and other interesting plants and fungi, and stop for anything else of interest. Everyone welcome but no dogs please. The park has pit toilets available at a few locations along the walk. Meet at Spruceland Mall under the usual Spruceland/Save on Foods sign at 8:30 am (you might need to zoom in on the map to see where the sign is.) Carpooling will depart at 8:40 am. Suggested fee for car pooling is $3. Trip will conclude by noon. Please contact Heather at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.
