Upcoming Outings and COVID-19 Guidance

These are challenging times due to COVID-19. We all embrace nature and long to see our favourite wildflowers, birds, mammals, insects and other wildlife. DRFN will follow the guidance, laws and regulations of Canada, Ontario and local municipalities to limit the spread and minimize the danger. When “Stay at Home” guidance is lifted, DRFN will resume outings but limits on group size and social distancing will still apply. We will not car-pool or share optics so bring your own. Be prepared that washrooms may not be as available as in the past. Bring hand sanitizer. Bring your own drinks, and food since restaurants may not be available.

Annual Winter Bird Feeder Tour

This is our annual opportunity to check our favourite feeders in north Pickering and Whitby in search of local birds, northern visitors and those who normally would have headed south by now. Due to COVID-19, we will miss our delicious potluck but look forward to 2022.

Meet at Mount Zion United Church. (Drive north on Westney Road past highway 7 to Concession 8 and turn right (east). Address is 3000 Concession 8 just east of Salem Road.)

Dress warmly!
