NONC Saturday Morning Nature Watch and Coffee:
At 9:00 am on Saturdays, those who are available and wish to get out into nature, meet at the advertised location and observe nature for approximately an hour. No leader. Just show up and everyone contributes to the observations. After the outing someone can send a report to me of where, who and what. This will be reported in the weekly e-news and possibly in Newspacket. Participants decide if they will go for coffee afterwards and, if so, where. Car-pooling is optional, as participants arrange it. Rain or shine, hot or cold; if people show up, it happens.
Sat., April 19th, 9:00 am, Marshall Field, Okanagan Landing, walk the trail along the creek to the lake and back. Meet in the parking lot closest to the tennis courts and ball diamonds (the first parking lot if you are driving towards the lake).
Sat., April 26th, 9:00 am, Turtle Mountain, walking the Grey Canal Trail and Rocky Point Park. Take Turtle Mountain Blvd from Alexis Park Dr and park in the lot on the right, opposite Razorback Ct. Parking is limited.
