* Most of the route is frequented by atv and snow machines but we will check out less used paths—at the time of writing these had up to a meter of snow. Depending upon weather and conditions, alternate footwear, possibly hikers with ice-creepers, might be preferable. Dress appropriately. If the forecast is bad, the outing may be rescheduled.
On a good day there can be over ten thousand gulls present on Quidi Vidi Lake, from a wide variety of species. As a result, the lake attracts increasing numbers of birding tourists from both North America and Europe. Join expert birder Jared Clarke (http://birdtherock.
When – Saturday, February 7, at 10 am (if the weather doesn’t cooperate we will move ahead to Sunday, February 8 same time, same place)
