BIRDING CARDEN ALVAR Download as iCal file
Saturday 06 June 2020, 07:30am - 04:00pm

This trip has been chosen to support OFO’s Young Birders initiative.
Alvars are a rare landscape, places where limestone flats are near the surface, creating conditions for a specialized flora and wonderful bird habitat. Carden Alvar (about an hour’s drive from Barrie) is a great place to view a rich diversity of birds, some of which are very difficult to find elsewhere.
