16 oct 2011: White Tail Linking at the Wild Bird Centre

The White tails went to the Wild Bird Care Centre over on Moodie Drive along with A Pack on the 16th October. They learned about bird adaptations of beaks and feet.
Afterwards we went for a little hike to feed the chickadees. Along the way we found a porcupine up in a tree. Several blue jays were spotted too.

Investiture : 11th October

On Oct 11th we will be having our fall camp fire at Camp No'Chimik.   Meet at No'chimik between 6 - 6:15pm.  We will likely be there a little later than usual, ending around 7-45. .

Here is a map to No'Chimik (5943 Second Line Road, South of Manotick).

From 1st Manotick Beavers Colony A

If the map is a bit small, here are the directions:

From Manotick Main Street - head South
Go through the town of Manotick and turn right onto Century Road.
Go all the way to the end of Century Road
Turn left onto Second Line
Turn Left at No'Chimik (5943) - up the long driveway to the house/barn.
There is a Scouts sign at the end of the driveway.

Go through the swing gate to the parking area.  The parking area may be a bit wet at No'Chimik depending on the weather. If it is, don't go through the gate, and park around the barns and near the house instead. That way noone should get stuck!

After you park, follow the road down to the bottom of the hill.  The campfire pit is to the right in the trees. Because there will be a lot of people it would be especially appreciated by the owners of the camp if we can Carpool. Please do your best to accomodate this.

See you there!
