Migration Monitor Loop Hikes

March 12, 2023 @ 10:00 am April 16, 2023 @ 10:00 am

Tamara Wilson, a member of OSFN and the PBTC (Peninsula Bruce Trail Club) has set up six Migration Monitor Loop Hikes (10-12km each, approx. 2hrs., with the pace ranging from brisk to leisurely, on sometimes difficult terrain, open to the public and OSFN members too).

With 10am starts, beginning March 12 to April 16, the hikes will alternate between two routes, for six consecutive Sundays, inviting hikers to “Join us as we look for clues of spring’s arrival on Cape Chin North. We will alternate two routes on a weekly basis, watching for seasonal changes along the wetlands, small inland lakes, woodlands and escarpment shoreline. We will stop, look and listen for the arrival of plants and flowers, birds and other harbingers of spring.’  

For more hike details, please be sure to visit https://www.pbtc.ca/hikes  and to register for one or more hikes, please email the hike leader tamara.wilson@eastlink.ca

OSFN Indoor Meetings are normally held on the second Thursday of the month at 7:00 p.m. at the Bayshore Community Centre, 1900 3rd Ave E Owen Sound. There are no Indoor Meetings in July and August. Please see the individual event listings below for more details.

We invite speakers with a wide range of expertise from Grey/Bruce and other parts of the province. These evenings are open to the public. The auditorium is open by 6:30. The meeting gets under way at 7:00, and may include brief announcements by other organizations as well as OSFN club activities, club business, social time, nature sightings and reports.

The club also offers a full schedule of outdoor activities during the year. Through these outings, members learn more about the birds, plants, mammals and geology of this part of Ontario. We also keep a protective eye on our precious natural areas.
