(NOTE: NOT A CATARAQUI CANOE CLUB SANCTIONED EVENT.)
Dave advises participants to consider this as just another day (5-7hrs) of recreational skiing.
AMHERST ISLAND OWL WOODS
Steve will be our informed guide: ‘The Owl Woods on Amherst Island are world famous for owls in winter. You may see: Snowy, Barred, Northern Saw Whet, Boreal, Long Eared, Short Eared, and the occasional Great Horned Owl. Chickadees and Nut Hatches will eat from your hand. Woodpeckers and Northern Harriers are common. Viewings are erratic depending on feeding conditions - it is a good hike regardless.
Bring binoculars, cameras, and suitable footwear for the km hike in. Where possible we will carpool from our rendezvous point – there is a fee for the ferry.
