Description Of This Tour

Twin Lakes historian, Coral Brown takes you on this fascinating tour that follows the water and the aquifer up into the watershed. See the relationship between surface and groundwater and view species at risk such as painted turtles and rare wildflowers. Hear about the unusual stand of large cedar trees and walk on some of the fur brigade trail as you learn of the history and the balance between water and life. There are many rare birds to see as well such as Blue Herons, American Goldfinches, Meadowlarks, Red-breasted Nuthatches, Lewis’s Woodpeckers, and a loon family among others. The tour ends on a viewing deck near a Bald Eagles Nest. You can chat and enjoy the aquifer water and snacks.

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.
