Explore the Frontenac Arch with Terry Sprague – March 26

Terry-Sprague-Henri-Garand-photoPopular local naturalist Terry Sprague will “Explore The Frontenac Arch” with members and guests at the regular monthly meeting of the Prince Edward County Field Naturalists Tuesday, March 26.

The event will be held in Bloomfield Town Hall starting at 7 pm.  Everybody is welcome.

“The Frontenac Arch is one of my favourite places to hike,”  Sprague says. “Situated on a southern arm of the Canadian Shield north of Kingston, this geological ridge of ancient billion year old rock features granite outcrops, vast wetlands and mixed forests. The plant and animal communities are varied and the hiking trails offer an interesting array of habitats and wildlife.”

In this presentation, Sprague will point out some of the natural features in places like Depot Lakes, Rock Dunder, the Rideau Canal, and Frontenac Park.

Sprague’s comprehensive experience hiking, canoeing and camping in these areas gives him valuable perspective for his presentation.

He is pleased to contribute to the PECFN’s Ostrander Point Appeal Fund.

“The importance of the appeal that the naturalists have undertaken cannot be over stated.  Ostrander Point must not be developed and I am pleased and happy to be able to help raise the necessary funds for the appeal.”

The event welcomes everyone, especially people interested in finding out about these nearby natural areas.  Coffee and light refreshments will be available.
