Lake Clear “Big Rock” mini-bioblitz

We have been invited by the Lake Clear Conservancy to have a look at "Big Rock".  They want us to do a mini-bioblitz and inventory species on this recently purchased property.

It is a 10 acre parcel at the north end of Lake Clear with a great view.  It has field and woodlot and cliff habitats.  A highlight of our bird list could be peregrine falcon, and on the plant list, the rare Rocky Mountain Woodsia fern.

Let's meet at 10 a.m., this Saturday, June 24, at John Almstedt's cottage at 79 Bald Rock Trail.  From Highway 41 south of Eganville, take Foymount Road (County Road 512), then turn on Manning Road, proceed to Bald Rock Trail.
