Can you hear me now?

Wednesday, August 6th, 2014

A few people in the TOPW Facebook group have mentioned that they don’t always receive updates regarding our walks. Sadly Facebook has become quite unreliable recently, but I post the same walk info to our Flickr group (which doesn’t have any way to push info out to the group) and the TOPW.ca website, which has a mailing list attached – I would recommend joining that list (as well) so that you should always get notified.

If all you need is a quick reminder, then another option is to follow TOPW on Twitter or add the TOPW calendar feed to your online calendar!

Don’t say we don’t give you options! 🙂

Spring Bird Festival, May 12+13

Thursday, May 3rd, 2012

Date: Saturday May 12th, and again on Sunday 13th.

OK, pay attention now – there are multiple options:

1) join (as a participant or help us lead) the Nature Photography Workshop; there are two workshops (9:30am and 2:30pm); each is 1.5 hours long; participants must sign up on the Festival’s registration page. *Note: this is Saturday (May 12) only.

2) “regular” photo walk starting at 10am Saturday, heading through Tommy Thompson Park, down to the lighthouse and back again, ending at a (yet to be determined) pub.

3) the same “regular” photo walk starting at 10am on the Sunday

Whichever option you pick, please note that there are very limited facilities at the park, so (a) bring lunch, and (b) check where the washrooms are and plan accordingly! [map] Note: pets are not permitted.

It’s going to be difficult to describe where the group is if you want to join us later in the day but we’ll try to work something out.
