Connecting Lake Simcoe's Community

Orillia Naturalists' Club Bird Count is Sat., Dec. 19.

The club is planning a responsible COVID-19 Christmas Bird Count. The team leaders of our nine territories have agreed to coordinate for their territory. Each leader will decide what is most appropriate for their territory and their Count. 

There are several ways you can participate if you would like to be part of this year’s Count.

Participation in the Count could range from driving your own car and following the team leader’s car. Here it would be important to socially distance at any stop and putting on a mask when out of your car.

It could be that a team leader may prefer to divide their territory into sections and each car would cover that section on their own or with anyone in their “bubble”.

Another option would be to provide feedback on your feeder activity if you live within our region.

IMPORTANT:  No car pooling with others unless they are in your “bubble”.

If you are interested in participating, please email Fern Splichal at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or phone her at 705 325 2952.
