Annual Chilanko Marsh Field Trip
Date: May 18, 2019. Leader Jim Sims 296-3638 or firstname.lastname@example.org)
We will conduct an annual bird species count at Chilanko Marsh. Please allow for a 2-hour drive and
follow the wildlife viewing signs on the next right after the Puntzi Lake turnoff (approx. 200km from Williams Lake).
Please arrive at the tanker base by 9:00 am. After the walk around the marsh you are welcome to join the party for a
pot-luck-supper and spend the night at Jimís new home at Eagle Lake. There is limited room in the home so you might
be more comfortable in a camper or tent, however there will be a lot more indoor space than other years. On Sunday
you can continue to explore the West Chilcotin with a walk along the north shore of Tatla Lake, an interesting
grassland slope with spectacular views of the mountains and many bird species. Before you head back to town on
Monday we will do a morning walk at Lunch Lake a receding shoreline should attract some interesting shore birds and
waterfowl. If you can give us an extra day on Tuesday we will be conducting a work-bee at the Bennie Cabin on
Nimpo Lake and more help is needed for this day.
