About our Field Trips

Field trips provide an excellent opportunity for club members and the public to meet new people and to explore our natural environment. However, we ask you to remember that the places we visit are special, so please do not pick plants or collect specimens on field trips. Leave dogs and other pets at home except for service dogs. Use your own judgement as to whether you bring a lunch and/or refreshments. Also, dress appropriately for the weather. Insect repellent is recommended for trips in May and June.

If you have any questions regarding field trips, please contact either the marianchilds(at)shaw(dot)catrips coordinator or the field trip leader directly. The club is always interested in new ideas, so don't hesitate if you would like to lead a field trip or workshop or have an idea for one. Watch for the "FAMILY FRIENDLY EVENT!" notice on specific outings and bring your children along!

If You Plan to Attend

Please, call or email the field trip leader to confirm the date, time and place and to hear of any updates or last minute changes a few days before the trip is scheduled to take place. The leader will also appreciate knowing the approximate number of participants ahead of time.

Please do not bring pets on our conducted hikes. Thank you for your consideration.

When our walk is taking place on a Lakehead Region Conservation Authority property, please note that parking fees apply. To help offset LRCA's costs of maintenance we encourage you to buy a season pass here: Explore Card or at the LRCA office or pay $2 for a one time parking fee. Thank you.
