Description

Join me as guest leader Christine Bowen from Bay Area Restoration Park (BARC) takes us on an interpretive walk on the loop around Bayfront Park.   Christine will update us on the issues and restoration projects that are happing in the area.  Learn about the challenges of the Remedial Action Plan to help clean our harbour waters.  Christine is very knowledgeable and you can ask all the questions you like about the wildlife including invasive species like Common Carp and Phragmites that live in the area and what steps are being taken to control them.   Optional stop at Williams Cafe.  Sign up at 9:45 so we can leave promtly at 10AM.

This is a paved path that can be tricky if snow or ice covered.  Wear boots with icers and bring poles if you have them.  It can be chilly by the bay so dress warm. Bring water and snacks.  Cancelled in inclement weather.  Registration not required but if you want to let me know you're coming I can inform you if walk is cancelled.  Bron brontreg@cogeco.ca  Cell phone with text 905-334-4013 or home phone 905-637-7136.
