  NATURE MONCTON FIELD TRIP TO CALEDONIA GORGE

DATE:
Saturday May 30th, 2020

MEETING PLACE:  At the Crooked Creek Lookout.  Follow Rte 114 towards Alma from Moncton.  In Riverside-Albert by the Forest Dale Home and the Albert Medical Centre, Rte 114 takes a 90 degree turn.  At this point, turn right onto Forestdale Rd, and drive to the end.

TIME:   8:00 AM for those who want to come for some early stationary birding in that area

            9:00 AM for those who would prefer to arrive later

LEADER:  Roger Leblanc

REGISTRATION:  Louise Nichols at nicholsl@eastlink.ca

We have visited the Caledonia Gorge Protected Area twice in the fall, but never in the spring when the birds are in full song.  Roger Leblanc will lead the group through this special area full of natural beauty, concentrating on the birds of spring which many of us appreciate now more than ever given the isolated conditions we’ve experienced in the last couple of months due to Covid-19.

For those of you who are up early, Roger will be at the site at 8:00 AM to lead the group in some birding on site.  Those who wish to arrive later can join at 9:00 at which time, the hike will begin.

Because of regulations restricting the size of group gatherings, we will take registrations for this trip.  If we have a large number who are interested, we may divide the participants into two groups.  We will also keep abreast of any new developments in provincial Covid-19 guidelines and will adjust accordingly while keeping participants informed.

So come join us for a day of birding in a beautiful environment.  Be prepared for a round trip hike of 5 to 10 kms.  Dress accordingly for the weather with good waterproof footwear.  Bring a lunch, water and snacks. 

All are welcome, Nature Moncton member or not.
