Saturday January 26 (FULL!) and Saturday February 9
9:00 am – 1:00 pm Snowy Owl Outing starting at Topsy Farms 14775 Front Road $35
Tour leader – Janet Scott, Amherst Island’s own “Bird Lady”
Catch the 8:30 ferry at Millhaven (please arrive early, the boat can be busy). The ferry is $9 round trip/car. Meet at Topsy Farms,14775 Front Rd. Ride the school bus to visit the locations Janet knows where Snowy Owls may regularly be seen. The bus will stop for photographs. Janet will discuss other raptors and owls, and the conditions that lead our Island to be a mecca for these birds. Information about “Operation Snowstorm” will be offered. (We will not be visiting the presently inaccessible ‘Owl Woods’ – not a Snowy Owl habitat). The bus will return to the farm by noon, allowing time for warm food and drink purchase, washrooms and the opportunity to browse the Wool Shed before leaving for the 1 pm ferry.
