My friend from Arocha will be taking some people out for bird watching. great opportunity to meet new friends and learn about birds and its role in the ecosystem.
Nearest station = Templeton station.
Please arrange carpool amongst yourselves.
If this becomes popular i'll see if we can get a hike/walk every other week.
we can grab a bit somewhere nearby or far away depending on what people want to eat. (Abby is doing an event at Golden swan)
April 26: Listening to Sounds in Creation: Guided Bird Walk by Stanley Martin
Location: Iona Ponds, Iona Beach Park, https://goo.gl/maps/iJUcr
Birds are an indicator of an ecosystem’s health. Birds help also to disperse native plant seeds, a mutually beneficial relationship. We will have Stanley Martin lead us to identify water and woodland birds at the Iona Ponds and Woodland areas.
Meet us 8:30am at the very last Iona Beach Parking Area (by the toilets).
Clothing: Wear good boots or shoes that can get wet, and layer warm clothing. Best to wear waterproof pants & jacket depending on the weather. Sunglasses for wind protection.
Bring/Borrow binoculars if at all possible.
