Prince Albert Area (Spruce Home) Marsh Walk

June 16 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

Join Birds Canada and Nature Prince Albert on a guided wetland walk and driving tour near Spruce Home, north of Prince Albert! 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.

Registration is required to receive

directions to the meet-up location.

Timing: Sunday, June 16th 9am – 12pm – rain or shine unless severe weather looms.

Cost: Free!

Location: We will meet up at the MacNeill Farm near Spruce Home, a short drive north of Prince Albert off Highway 2. Directions to the meeting location will be emailed out Saturday afternoon.

MarshWalk plans: We plan to carpool in several vehicles (if people are comfortable) and drive to Cheal Lake, stopping at various roadside wetlands and exploring some Fish and Wildlife Development Fund lands on foot. Time permitting we will drive to nearby Taylor Lake to walk along an old road that cuts through the lake, stopping opportunistically at wetlands along the way.

Accessibility and location information: We will be walking off trail on public lands, and doing some roadside birding, so expect tall vegetation, uneven ground, and potentially dew and ticks.

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

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

ALL ARE WELCOME!
