Overnight Photo Adventure to Algonquin Park – Sep 28-29
Time: 6:00 am – Meet at: Coliseum Theatre Parking Lot, east side, 3090 Carling Ave., east of Bayshore ~ $282.50 per pers.
Experience Algonquin Park at the peak of fall colours with Always An Adventure Inc! Small group: Max 7 participants and 2 instructors. RSVP: by September 13th! Algonquin Park is famous for its extensive northern forest habitats. Its large stands of spruce and pine often attract a variety of birds. It also harbours several northern residents that are considered rare in the Ottawa area. Here we look for birds like Gray Jays, Boreal Chickadees, Spruce Grouse, Evening Grosbeak and Black-backed Woodpecker. Other birds we hope to see include Northern Goshawk, Red Crossbill, White-winged Crossbill, Pine Siskin and if we are really lucky a Bald Eagle or Barred Owl. We also hope to see mammals like Beaver, River Otter, Black Bear, Pine Martin, and Moose. If conditions warrant, we will listen for wolf howling at night. We will be in the park during peak fall colors and will visit key-points for colourful landscapes and scenery including the famous “Wall of Red”. We will sleep just outside the park at the Dream Catcher Motel and start very early in the morning, hopefully capturing a moody mist evaporating from the park’s many water ways. We will spend our entire time in the park, hiking some of the leisurely trails, leaving around 5:30pm Friday evening. We can expect to be back home around 8:30 – 9:00pm. Please see our MEETUP event for more details and RSVP options.
