On February 9th, join Tour leader Janet Scott - Amherst Island’s own “Bird Lady” - for a fun and informative Snowy Owl Outing.

Hop on the bus at Topsy Farms and visit various locations where Snowy Owls are regularly seen. Bring your camera! The bus will stop for photographs. Janet will discuss other raptors and owls, and the conditions that lead our Island to be a mecca for these birds. Information about “Operation Snowstorm” will be offered. (We will not be visiting the presently inaccessible ‘Owl Woods’ – not a Snowy Owl habitat).

The bus will return to the farm by noon, allowing time for warm food and drink purchase, washrooms and the opportunity to browse the Wool Shed before leaving for the 1 pm ferry.

Cost is $35 per person. For more information and to register click here.

Note: Catch the 8:30 ferry at Millhaven (please arrive early, the boat can be busy). The ferry is $9 round trip/car.
