Field Trip: Cataraqui River & Kingston Inner Harbour
March 29 @ 8:30 AM - 12:00 PM
The guided trip is CANCELLED, and a self-guiding option is suggested:
Explore areas along the Cataraqui River looking for waterfowl, over-wintering species, and early migrants. The best places to visit along the Inner Harbour are in the bay at the Montreal Street apartments (i.e., “Village on the River”), along the south shore of Belle Island, at Doug Fleurer Park on the west shore and at Woods Landing, (i.e., Lilla Burke Park) and Green Bay at Barriefield on the east shore of the Cataraqui River. Between driving from point to point, there is a fair bit of standing outside (so dress warmly) but walking is limited to short distances on gentle terrain. This is also a good route by bicycle: On the north end you can go up Montreal Street and cross over Kingston Mills — another great spot to check out — then come back to Barriefield following highway 15.
