Each winter there are usually a number of events offered by local hike leaders. I try to do the loop that starts at F.W.R. Dickson Conservation Area. We snowshoe or walk to Bannister Lake and back. Most winter days that tends to clear the cobwebs. Also, we get to feed the Blackcap Chickadees. We tend to see quite a few real wild turkeys or their tracks when out hiking or snowshoeing ... a real success story. Read about the wild turkey history at the Ministry of Natural Resources. Yes, the signs in the following pictures have been altered a tad!
