Northumberland Land Trust has Gone to the Birds!

Northumberland Land Trust has Gone to the Birds!

Print Email
fifeiSpring is in the air, and with spring, comes birds!   Our 13 Nature Reserves are a haven for birds, whether they are migrants just passing through, or birds that stay and raise a family.   Did you know 165 different  species of birds have been found on our nature reserves over the past few years? That is an absolutely incredible number!
This spring our programming is bird friendly and bird focussed.
Wednesday March 13 at 7:00 pm Ian Fife from Birds Canada will be speaking to us about how private landowners are key to the recovery of species at risk.   You can learn what actions you can take to help birds right on your own property.  You can join this Zoom meeting from the comfort of you own home by clicking here to register:  
Saturday, April 30 at 10:00 AM you are invited to a Birding for Beginners Nature Walk at the beautiful Lone Pine Marsh- Braham Nature Reserve.    This nature reserve has a variety of habitats including marsh, meadow, and forest that is just right for our feathered friends.   Join property steward and bird lover Leslie Abram to learn about tips for observing and enjoying birds. 
Sunday, May 22 is our NLT Birding Marathon  For 24 hours, a team of expert birders will visit all 13 Nature Reserves and try to find as many species of bird as we can.    This fundraiser is dedicated to the memory of Norma Wallace, a long time NLT supporter.    With luck, and good weather, we hope to find 100 or more species!    Donations can be made per species, or in a fixed amount.   This annual event is one we always look forward to.   Donors of $100 or more will get a private birding tour with some of our expert birders the following weekend.   Our Canada Helps Donation page is here: https://www.canadahelps.org/en/dn/71035
