Leaderless – Winter Stations, February 23rd

Thursday, February 21st, 2019

Back to the Beaches for a special event.

Meet at 10:00am on Saturday, February 23rd.

Congregate at the Tim Hortons at Woodbine Beach. (1681 Lake Shore Blvd E, just south-east of Coxwell and Lake Shore.)

The six Winter Stations are on Woodbine Beach; from there the group might decide to head east along the boardwalk, west along Queen, or somewhere else – it’s up to those who are there!

Leaderless in the Beaches, January 26th

Tuesday, January 22nd, 2019

We’ve not explored the East End in a while.

Meet at 10:00am on Saturday, January 26th. (The weather forecast looks cold so wrap up; bring spare batteries if you can and keep them warm too!)

We’ll congregate at Remarkable Bean, 2242 Queen St E (at Beech Ave).

Starting at the R.C.Harris Water Treatment Plant – it’s very close to Neville Loop, at the east end of the Queen streetcar route.

I’m sure we’ll wander around there for a while, and then probably head west along the boardwalk before finding somewhere on Queen Street for lunch. Maybe more walking after lunch if people are interested.

Tommy Thompson Park, July 15th

Tuesday, July 11th, 2017

Thanks to Brad for organising & leading the next scheduled photowalk:

Meet: 10:00 AM Gate at Tommy Thompson Park

Route: We will walk along the lake side and take the side trails to the tip of the park. We will have lunch at the tip. We will return on the Toronto side and take the side trails back to front gate.

Lunch: There is nothing in the park so you will need to pack a lunch and extra water.

Bring your macro lens for close up shooting of bugs and plants. Bring your long lens for wildlife photos.

Post Walk: We will see how many are left and discuss a spot to meet up on Queen St.
