Monthly Nature Exploration - High Park (Sunday, June 18, 2017)
SUNDAY, JUNE 18, 2017

HIGH PARK (Toronto, Ont.)

Start time: 10:00 AM
Finish time: 4:00 PM

Attendance: Limited to 12 participants (early registration is advised)

Details: This is the second of five monthly educational nature hikes for this year. Limited to a small group (max 12), this is a great opportunity to learn about nature from a seasoned naturalist in the company of other like-minded individuals.

Format: On this moderate length hike, we will "walk & wonder", stopping frequently to look at birds, wildflowers, trees & shrubs, mammals, reptiles & amphibians, butterflies, dragonflies, mushrooms, or whatever else the group is interested in. Your guide will help identify whatever we encounter and provide loads of interesting information.

Knowledge level: Suitable for all levels, from beginner to advanced.

Physical requirements: Must be able to comfortably walk up to 8 km over trails with some slopes, while carrying a daypack to transport your lunch & drink (we will be having lunch on the trail).

Washrooms: There will be washrooms close to where we stop for lunch.

Note 1: No dogs or other pets.

Note 2: Must be 18 years of age or older to attend.


LIABILITY WAIVER: All participants will be required to sign a liability waiver on the day of the outing.


CANCELLATION POLICY: Depending on the weather forecast, the outing may be cancelled in which case an email will be sent to all registrants by 7:30 AM the morning of the outing. Should the outing be cancelled, a full refund (including service fees) will be provided.
