Fall Meet 2020

 

NATURE SASKATCHEWAN FALL MEET 2020: CELEBRATING 30 YEARS OF THE LAST MOUNTAIN BIRD OBSERVATORY

Due to ongoing concerns related to the COVID-19 pandemic, Nature Saskatchewan has had to adjust its plans for the Fall Meet.

On Saturday, September 19 and Sunday, September 20, we invite you to join us at the Last Mountain Bird Observatory (LMBO) station for guided and self-guided tours. Transportation to and from the station, as well as lunch and refreshments, will be your own responsibility. There is no registration fee for this meet.

For the safety of both our guests and the birds, there will be no admittance into the banding station. However, tours along the mist nets and presentations on the processing of the birds will be provided.

A birding tour along the lake, and a trip to the National Wildlife Area at the north end of the lake, will also be available.

To help manage group numbers so as to ensure the best possible experience, and maintain everyone’s safety, please call 1-800-667-4668 or email the office at info@naturesask.ca to register for the tours. The tours will run on Saturday and Sunday at 8:30 a.m., 10:30 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. (Saturday 10:30am tour is SOLD OUT)

On Saturday evening at 7:00 p.m., via Zoom webinar, Al Smith, bander-in-charge since the inception of the station, will give a presentation on the history of the station and the information collected over the past 30 years. To attend the virtual presentation, please inform the office of your interest. You will then receive unique Zoom log-in information to join.

 

Please note: these plans are subject to change based on the current restrictions in place due to the pandemic.
