SPRING BIRD AND WILD FLOWER HIKE, MAY 10 at Tucker House, Rockland, ON.

Come and join Frank Pope, veteran Ottawa Field Naturalist guide, on our
annual Spring Wild Flower Hike at Tucker House, Saturday, May 10, 10 am
to noon.   This year, we will be joined by avid birder Dave Smythe, also
from the Ottawa Field Naturalists.

We will gather at Tucker House (1731 Tucker Road, Clarence-Rockland) at
10 am and return around noon to eat our lunch and talk about the wonders
we have seen.  Last year featured marsh marigolds in the wetland and the
newly discovered ragged robin (flower) in the meadow.  The year before
featured white and red trilliums and jack-in-the pulpits in the old
growth forest.  Who knows what surprises Mother Nature has in store for
us this year on Tucker House's varied terrain (31 acres)?

Come prepared for wet or sunny weather.  Long pants and sturdy footwear
are recommended (waterproof, if you want to explore the beaver pond).
BYO lunch, and camera if you wish.  Good well water is available to

RSVP to Johanna, 829-4964.

Now is the time to mark the Tucker House Summer and Fall Nature Hikes on your
 Saturday, July 12    Summer wild flowers (peak season)
 Saturday, October 4   Fall mushrooms, wild flowers and leaves

NOTE:  If flower gazing and bird watching don't turn you on,  we also
offer an opportunity to tune up your muscles in the great out door
TUCKER HOUSE SPRING SPRUCE-UP BEE,  anytime between 9A and 4P on the
same day - May 10.  See separate email for more info.
