    MEMBERS-ONLY Outing to Burnt Lands Provincial Park
    Saturday, July 18, 2020
    8:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. (approx. 3 hours)
    Rain date: Sunday, July 19 
    Location: We will meet at Burnt Lands (park on March Road near Carroll Side Road).
    Leader: Derek Dunnett

    Derek will lead the group around the park discussing the topography, fossils, trees, plants, birds, herps, insects and other things of interest that the group runs across. The terrain is generally flat, mostly rocky with some wet grassy areas and is open with no shade. There are really no rocks or tree stumps to use as benches. Solid, comfortable closed toe footwear and ability to walk and stand for the duration of the hike is required. It can get hot so please bring water to drink, wear a hat, sunscreen and long pants tucked into your socks (poison ivy and ticks). Binoculars and a camera are always a good idea if you have them.

    A note about COVID-19: Participant numbers will be restricted to those allowed by local Health bylaws so register early and only if you truly know you can come. You may only register yourself and anyone in your own household. Participation will be on a first-come first-registered basis. Confirmation emails will be sent.

    Derek will likely be using a microphone to facilitate communication due to our physical distancing requirements. You will be required to bring a non-medical mask in the event we have technical issues with this. Please do not come if you are ill or have come in contact with someone who has tested positive for COVID-19.

    Register at events@mfnc.ca no later than Wednesday, July 15. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to ask. If you have registered but find you have to cancel, please let us know as soon as possible.
