Mid of May is the most exciting time in Ottawa Valley. Most spring flowers are starting to bloom. Birds come back to nesting sites and occupy their individual territories. We organize a guided tour to Dewberry Trail and Mer Bleue area to observe spring flowers and other plants, and to see birds and other forest dwellers.  In mid of May, tamarack at Mer Bleue is covered by fresh tender needles, we’ll explore the bog and talk about its history and ecological role. If you are interested to know more about plants and animals in spring, join our hike on Sunday, May 14 at 9 am. We meet at the Parking on Dolman Ridge Rd. of Ottawa Greenbelt. After a hike along Dewberry Trail, we will drive to Mer Bleue – Parking 22 that to explore the bog area.

How to dress?

Please, watch the weather forecast to be prepared for a trip. It is expected that it will be warm weather on Sunday, good for hiking. Perhaps, first mosquitoes will be already active. You will need comfortable clothes and good shoes for hiking.

It will be great to have your cameras and binoculars for nature observation. It is good also to take water and light snacks.
