Snowy Owl PROWL!!!*Winter only, running all WEEK!
As soon as the mercury drops below 0 degrees Celsius, get your binoculars out because we are experiencing a Snowy Owl invasion!! This year marks the second invasion year we have seen in the Collingwood area, which is unusual since invasions occur once every 3-4 years. Lucky us!! Snowy
Owls love the cold and love hunting in the afternoon. Bring your camera and warm clothes and we'll go on a Snowy Owl Prowl and find these majestical birds perched on telephone poles, fences, barns, and hay bails. Be prepared for some up close opportunities for photos...so close you can watch their heads pivot like a turret, scanning for their next meal.

Snowshoe!!!!*starting in Decemeber running all WEEK!
The snow will be flying by then, and as the snow deepens in December, you'll be gliding on your snowshoes loving every moment of not sinking in to your knees. I'll guide you through the Loree Forest pointing out animal tracks and who made them and the tree species along the trail. As we make our way to the north side of the trail, we'll stop for a cup of hot chocolate and cookies and you can take in the spectacular views of Georgian Bay in the winter.
If you have never snowshoed before, don't worry, after a quick tutorial, you won't want to take them off.
