Tour 22 – Ginty’s Pond: A Wetland Wonder

Tickets closed for this year, thank you!

Categories: , , ,

Description Of This Tour

Explore this small wetland formerly known as Cawston slough with Lee McFadyen. During its glory days, Ginty’s Pond was a recreational hub to Cawstonites who enjoyed skating, boating, fishing, wildlife watching and plain old ‘mucking about’ on its shores. Today, diminished water levels have affected some recreational values, but the pond provides habitat for numerous bird species, beaver, bats, turtles and amphibians. We will also walk through some cottonwoods to the Similkameen River and may be lucky enough to see nesting Lewis’ Woodpecker. Poison Ivy is close by but avoidable.

Please be prepared for all sorts of weather – hot, sunny, windy, cold and rain too! Dress in layers and bring all-weather clothing, sunscreen, a sun hat, sturdy hiking footwear, a snack and at least 1 litre of water for all tours and events. For longer walks and hikes you will need at least 2 litres of water, as well as snacks and a bagged lunch (if not provided). Cameras, binoculars and plant and bird field guides are optional but add to your enjoyment. Please note any additional items to bring if applicable for your tour.
