COVID-19 update: Our Monday evening walks are resuming effective June 14, 2021! As long as we’re in Step 1, the number of participants at outdoor events is limited to 10. This means nine participants in addition to the leader. Please register with Bill McIlveen at wmcilveen@sympatico.ca. Participants will be accepted on a first come-first served basis. Since our Monday evening walks are shared with Halton-North Peel Naturalists, we ask that you only register for events in south Halton during this limited period. 

Remember masks and physical distancing.

Summer walks are scheduled in the evenings from May to August. All walks are on Mondays and start at the meet location at 7:00pm sharp and last about 2 hours.

Please wear appropriate clothing and footwear and be prepared for biting insects.

Not as advertised! Some destinations may change if preliminary site visits determine that a site lacks sufficient interesting items. In such cases, the meeting location will remain unchanged but the trip destination will be altered to a nearby location.

Please contact us for more information.
