Special Trips on September 11 and 22
Nature Calgary has two new dates to explore Glenbow Ranch Provincial Park by golf cart. This Park is great for biking and hiking, but it is quite a long walk to get to the good birding areas.
The Glenbow Ranch Park Foundation offers golf cart tours Monday thru Thursday during the summer. These are available to the public and can be booked online. They focus on the Park’s history and general information. The regular golfcart tours go from 10:00 AM to noon and cost $25.
For September we have arranged two four-hour tours from 9:00 AM to 1:00 PM for $30 per person. These special trips are exclusively for Nature Calgary members. There are two carts, and each can accommodate six or seven passengers. They are also suited for folks with limited mobility. The primary focus will be birding, but there are good wild flowers too. Several Natural Calgary trip leaders completed an orientation tour and will direct the cart drivers to the preferred stopping spots. The carts will wait as we explore the various hotspots.
We will meet at the GRPP parking lot before 9:00 AM. When you register for the tour, you will also receive a confirmation email from GRPF which includes a waiver. The waiver must be signed before the tour begins. The cart drivers have extra waivers on hand, as sometimes people forget to bring them. It is preferred that Nature Calgary members register and pay through the GRPF website.
