Habitat and hybridization of wolves and coyotes, Justin Johnson • Mar 15, 7pm
Cobourg Public Library
This is the last event in this year’s speaker series collaboration with Northumberland Land Trust starts in the new year. All are welcome.
Making Maple Syrup at the Wilkinson Tract • March 24, 10am
Each year, our neighbour taps maples at the Wilkinson Tract and make maple syrup. The syrup is then sold to benefit charitable causes, including our Land Trust. Sap will be boiling and we will also walk out to the wetland to see spring awaken. Waterproof or rubber boots are recommended.
Exploring the McColl Tract • April 21, 9am
This will be the first chance for our members and friends to visit the McColl Tract, a lovely 68 acre property that was recently donated to us through the generosity of Judy and Bill Mills. We will explore the various types of forest found here as we walk south to Cold Creek. Be prepared for spring muck and wear rubber boots.
Bird Song Identification at the Wilkinson Tract • May 12, 6am
This is your chance to learn who makes what sound in the woods. We start early with the birds and will listen in woods and wetlands to the various birds that will be singing, and offer tips of how to tell them apart and remember them. Several frogs should be in full song too. Waterproof or rubber boots are recommended.
Munn Tract field trip and Annual General Meeting • June 9, 10am
We start our AGM with a field trip to the Munn Tract, just west of Codrington. James Munn will lead a walk through the old growth and planted forests, explaining how we are managing it to transition into a more natural forest. James has worked in the forest industry for decades and has a wealth of knowledge to pass along.
After our field trip we will gather at the nearby Codrington Community Centre for lunch (please bring your own) and the “business” part of the meeting (at around 12:30pm), which will briefly outline the many exciting things the Land Trust has been doing and has planned. After the meeting we will also be featuring a guest speaker. We hope to see as many members and friends as possible. This is also a great chance to talk with the Board, Land Stewards, and key volunteers to find out how you can get more involved.
Celebrate our Beginnings at the Lone Pine Marsh • September 29, 9am
We return to our roots at the Lone Pine Marsh – Braham Tract. This is where Muriel Braham, our founder, started it all when she purchased the Lone Pine Marsh in 1991. This large wetland has been evaluated as Provincially Significant because of its large size and the many rare species that live here. On this general nature walk we will look for whatever is around, enjoy the fall colours, and explore the field areas to the north which we manage as grassland for the Threatened Bobolink and Eastern Meadowlark that nest there.
