CCFEW BIRD WALK - SAM SMITH

Saturday, January 3rd

9:00 - 11:00 am, Colonel Sam Smith Park

Leader: Andrew Keaveney

This is a change from the usual pattern. Normally we do all the winter walks at Humber Bay, and we have not done a January walk for the past couple of years.

Meet in the south parking lot (where the road ends) at 9:00

Walks are held rain,or shine!
