The Arboretum at the University of Guelph has beautiful gardens, trails, natural areas, many varieties of trees and wildflowers, as well as wildlife. It is a great area for photography.
We will meet at the north end parking lot by Winner’s Store in Simcoe and car pool from there. Please bring a lunch with you.
There are self–guided tours or 1½ hour guided tours led by staff. The cost for this is $5.00 per person with a minimum of $60.00 for a group. The guided tour needs to be arranged at least two weeks in advance so please let Len know if you plan to attend. Contact Len at 519-428-6796.
Meetings are held on the second Tuesday of each month, at the Simcoe Seniors Centre, Pond Street, in Simcoe. Doors open at 7:15 p.m., and the program begins at 7:30 p.m.
Various field outings are also planned throughout the year, and include trips to local conservation areas, bird banding, winter tree identification and much more. Field outings are free of charge.
