Blaine Lake Marsh Walk

July 7 @ 9:00 am - 11:00 am

Join Birds Canada on a guided tour of Gillies Lake near Blaine Lake, Saskatchewan! This walk is the field component of the MarshWatch webinar series, but all are welcome. If you want to learn more about the birds and amphibians in Prairie Canada, all the webinars can be viewed on the program page here.

Timing: Sunday, July 7th 9am – 11am  – rain or shine unless severe weather looms.

Cost: Free!

Location: Meet in the parking lot of Gas Plus/Betty’s Diner in the town of Blaine Lake, 50 minutes north of Saskatoon and 1 hour southwest of Prince Albert. Carpooling is encouraged as we will be doing some roadside birding. LeeAnn will have 2 or 3 spaces in a vehicle travelling from Saskatoon, contact her to arrange.

Walk plans: After meeting at the parking lot we will drive a short distance east to view Gillies Lake, where will do a mix of roadside birding and walk some public lands.

Accessibility and location information: Roadside birding and off-trail walks mean there will be uneven ground to cover, washrooms available at the service stations in Blaine Lake.

Suggested items to bring: Binoculars, sturdy footwear, sun & bug protection, water/snacks.

We will bring: extra binoculars, a spotting scope, field guides, and enthusiasm!

Contact: LeeAnn Latremouille email skatlas@birdscanada.org

ALL ARE WELCOME!
