Directions: From the Dunrobin Road turn onto Riddell Drive. Drive down Riddell about 5km to where it swings sharp left and becomes the 6thLine. There is a flashing amber light here and a driveway on the right leading to the locked DND gates. Pull in here and wait at the gate. Someone will meet us at the gate at 8:00 so please arrive a few minutes before that to check in with Maureen.
The Innis Point Bird Observatory was founded in 1982 and is a non-profit organization dedicated to the study of birds and natural history. We will have the opportunity to learn about the important research and monitoring activities occurring there and to observe bird banding at this busy time of the year when migration is at a peak. The site is on the Ottawa River and is wet and rocky in places. Dress for the weather and wear appropriate footwear. The trip will be limited to the first 24 members who register at firstname.lastname@example.org
