THIS TOO SHALL MELT

Lake1

Its no new revelation…Lake Huron and Georgian Bay are frozen over. The Huron Fringe is encased in frigid whiteness while it awaits both the melt and the migration. Rest assured though, the birds, butterflies, wildflowers, the dragonflies, damsels and frogs, the snow covered, ice-coated landscape and shorelines, the pastures, streams and woodlands that we all love…they will be there…waiting for you when HFBF welcomes you all beginning May 22.

Meantime, as of this writing, over 60 events are still wide open.

Best to guarantee yourself a spot…Now. Why wait for Spring.

Check out our schedule of events and register at: http://www.friendsofmacgregor.org.


And here are a couple of Events you might want to consider:


Friday, May 22 – A3 – 6:30 AM – BIRDING INVERHURON & SURROUNDING AREA Marshall Byle

During this birding adventure Marshall will stop at various habitats along the shoreline to Inverhuron Provincial Park including the Tiverton lagoons. In the park you’ll explore the ancient dunes, riverbanks and varied forest types.

Marshall

Marshall Byle received his first field guide to birds when he was just four years old. That was the beginning of a life long involvement. Today, with over half a century of experience, he still loves to bird and to share the wonder of birds with others. As a member of the Huron Fringe Field Naturalists, Marshall brings years of expertise to his passion. You will enjoy Marshall’s mild manner as he leads you through some of his favourite spots in Bruce County.


 

May 30 – B23 – 9:00 AM – SCOPING IT OUT – Andalynne & Richard Tofflemire

It’s more than just identifying what you see. Andalynne and Richard will focus on how birds and bugs interact with each other. But don’t expect to cover a lot of distance because there’s so much to see right at your feet and above your head!

 May 31 – POND EXPLORATION – Andalynne & Richard Tofflemire

Join Richard and Andalynne for an informal, hands-on look at the fascinating critters that make the pond their home. Dip nets, basins and hand lenses will help us look at the often-unseen animals that live in pond water.

Tofflemire

Richard and Andalyne met while working together at a nature hobby store and have been exploring the outdoors together ever since. This husband & wife team leads nature walks at multiple events & venues throughout the year, as well as connecting people with nature on a daily basis through their respective jobs. Richard is still Manager at Wild Birds Unlimited Guelph and Andalyne works as full-time Naturalist at Cambridge Butterfly Conservatory. With their combined knowledge of birds and bugs, and their similar level of enthusiasm, Richard and Andalyne enjoy guiding all ages to a more intimate connection with the natural world around them.
