Contact / Registration: 

John Schulz (register by email at johnschulz2@gmail.com)   Nature Manitoba's COVID-19 protocols (effective 2022-Sep-22): Here.

Location: Beaudry Provincial Park parking lot.  A provincial park vehicle permit is needed.

Time: Leaving the parking lot at 11:00 AM.

Description: The first Nature Manitoba hike I joined was led by Les McCann at Beaudry Park.  It was an enjoyable afternoon on somewhat muddy trails. I remember how welcoming Les was, and the fun he brought to the hike. He was the first person I ever saw with overshoes for his hiking boots – similar to this.
Join me as we loop through the Wild Grape and Elm trails on hopefully a pleasant fall day, although I intend to hike no matter the weather (short of a blizzard).

Distance: 5 to 8 km (+/-) depending on the number of loops completed.  Estimated duration of 90 minutes to 2 hours.

Bring: Your name tag.

During this late fall outing we should see some lingering waterfowl, perhaps a Spruce Grouse or two, plenty of Bald Eagles and a few typical “winter” birds. Meet at the Garden City Shopping Centre parking lot (northwest corner) before 8 a.m. so that we can carpool from there.

Contact / Registration: 

Kevin & Anita Miller (register by email at k.a.miller@mts.net).   Nature Manitoba's COVID-19 protocols (effective 2022-Sep-15): Here.

Location: East St Paul Arena, 266 Hoddinott Road

Time: Arrive at the arena at 11:00 AM. Public skating is from 11:15 to 12:30.

Cost: Free.

Description: We will arrive before 11:00 and be located just inside the arena where you will sign-in. We'll direct you to the public skating dressing room.
You can skate for the full 90 minutes or however long you like. Skating rules are similar to public skating at Winnipeg arenas except there won't be a beginner's/kid's area pyloned off at one end of the ice because there will be very few people on the ice. Skating direction -- clockwise vs counter-clockwise -- will change every 15 minutes.
Masking inside the arena is optional, just like almost everywhere else.
East St Paul Arena -- public skating
We contacted the Recreation Services Coordinator for the RM of East St Paul to tell her we were coming and there could be ~25 of us.

Lunch: We asked the Recreation Services Coordinator about eating a bagged lunch in the arena after skating. She told us "We have done renovations to the facility and have seating in the lobby for about 10 people at a time."  Also, Grrrumpy's Pizza & Cafe is located inside the East St Paul Curling Club (across the parking lot from the arena), and Jonesy's Restaurant is located 3 km away in Birds Hill Town near the intersection of Hoddinott Road and Birds Hill Road.

Exploring Manitoba’s Threatened Bird Species

Exploring Manitoba’s Threatened Bird Species

Presenter: 

Tim Poole, Provincial Bird Biologist

Date: 

Monday, November 28, 2022

Start Time: 

7:30 pm

Location: 

Franco-Manitoban Cultural Centre (Pauline-Boutal Theatre), 340 Provencher Blvd

Admission: 

$5 for members (non-member rate $10)

Manitoba provides significant habitat for over 30 species of bird listed on either (or both) the federal and provincial species at risk acts. From grassland birds to shorebirds and aerial insectivores to wetland birds, the species currently considered as threatened are representative of a broad range of ecosystems and habitats. There is no one simple solution to reversing long-term declines in many species.

This talk will explore the diversity of threatened birds and how different organisations, including government, non-profits and industry are working together to reverse long-term declines in many species and conserve our precious birdlife.
