FIELD TRIP (LEVEL 2)
You are welcome to join the VNHS Saturday Birding Group at Saanichton Bay Park. As this is a birding hot-spot for wintering waterfowl, we should see loons, grebes, diving ducks and dabbling ducks. It is also a good area for passerines. Meet at 8:00 a.m. at the parking lot off Mount Newton Cross Rd, just a short distance past the all ways stop with Lochside Drive. Watch for the Central Saanich Park sign on the left.

Jannaca Chick of RPBO spent 2 weeks volunteering at the Khurkh Bird Ringing Station in northeastern Mongolia in May 2018. She then traveled for a week birding and camping. She will talk about her experiences and share photos of the country and some of the remarkable birds she saw there.
We meet at 7:30 p.m. in Rm. 159 of the Fraser Building, UVic. Everyone welcome! Come early to socialize! Presentation will follow announcements and a brief break. Note: UVic parking is $3.
Our trip leader Kem Luther has stated that if we learn just 20 of the common moss species in the area that we will recognize about 95 percent of the moss plants we see in the woods around Victoria. Kem will show us most of the twenty to get us started. You must pre-register as the number of participants will be limited to minimize habitat damage and allow optimal exchange of information. So register early. You are encouraged to bring a hand lens if you have one and dress for the weather.
Contact Agnes at thelynns at shaw.ca or 250-721-0634 for further information such as time and place and to register.
