Tour 28 – Ginty’s Pond: A Wetland Wonder

Tickets are now closed for this event.

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.
