Peru and Machu Picchu

Heather Walters, a writer for the Port Dover Maple Leaf, will tell us about her fascinating recent trip to Peru. She will tell us about her adventures getting to Machu Picchu, an Incan Citadel built in the 15th century. It is set high in the Andes Mountains above the Urubamba River valley.

Winter Birding in Haldimand County

The fields and pasture of Haldimand attract many wintering raptors, including Short-Eared Owls. The open water along the Lake Erie shoreline can be a good spot for waterfowl and the occasional Bald Eagle. Bring binoculars and wear warm clothing. Meet in Port Dover at the base of the dock on the west side of the harbor. Contact Len at 519-428-6796.
