Host: Karen Krueger
Park at the house, on the street, or at the end of the street. There is a dead end not far from the house. Join us for a nature outing on snowshoes through some of the trails of Fitzroy Provincial Park where we should see many winter birds and find lots of tracks and other signs of mammals going about their daily activities. We’ll walk along the banks of the Carp River to a spot where bald eagles are sometimes spotted and past a beaver pond. We’ll see “shale pillars that stand as testaments to the erosive power of water.” And visit a lovely frozen waterfall surrounded by ancient cedar trees. If we’re lucky, we’ll see the pair of pileated woodpeckers that frequent the park. After the outing, join us for a social gathering back at the home of Karen Krueger. Karen has three friendly cats and a friendly dog. Please keep this in mind if you have allergies. Bring snowshoes and a snack; hot drinks will be provided.
