Tour Description

Join us on a 2 hour morning hike exploring the native wildflowers and breeding birds of Petrel Point Nature Reserve! This fantastic freshwater coastal fen is a perfect location to search for unique plant and wildlife specialties such as the Purple Pitcher Plant, and the Canada Warbler. This beautiful hiking spot is located on the coast of Lake Huron, which is roughly 15 minutes outside of Wiarton. The walk will entail walking on well maintained boardwalks and trails, and along quiet roadsides. Summer is a wonderful time to explore the Bruce, with a bounty of nesting birds, rare flowers and plants, snakes, turtles and more! Our hike will take to variety of habitats, including marshes, lakes and the rare freshwater coastal fen. We have the chance of encountering birds such as Black Tern, American Bittern, Scarlet Tanager, Osprey, Canada Warbler, Brewer's Blackbird and more! Throughout the day we will be offering identification pointers, discussing the natural history of the region and point out any interesting flora and fauna that we come across. We will try to ensure you get excellent views of all the wildlife the Bruce has to offer. This hike is accessible for those with physical challenges; the trails are well maintained and flat. We will spend the day birding at a slow and relaxed pace, taking frequent stops along the way. Bathrooms breaks are spaced throughout the day and are easily accessible. *Notes* - a few of the roads we will be driving on have potholes, so drive accordingly. -bring your own snacks, and water (keep hydrated!) -bring good walking footwear, sunscreen, and a hat. -bring your own binoculars, butterfly nets, and magnifying glasses!
