    Orchids in the White Lake Fen

    8:30 amMetro Parking Lot, 375 Daniel Street, Arnprior

    Leader: Michael Runtz

    Meet: 8:30 am in the parking lot of the Metro Store, 375 Daniel Street, Arnprior. Park close to the road. We will carpool from there.

    This is a unique wetland which holds many of our native orchids and unusual insects too. Wet feet are guaranteed in the fen so old running shoes make perfect footwear on a hot day. Rubber boots would work too. It is a good idea to cover up with light clothing for protection against the sun and the biting insects. Bring a hand lens and binoculars if you have them. Expect to be out until early afternoon and bring lots of water and a lunch. There will be an ice cream stop along the way to our picnic area. Note: There will be a limited number of registrations accepted for this trip due to the sensitive nature of the fen habitat. Register at events@mfnc.ca
