Square Bashes

(Monday May 29 - Friday June 2)

This event ties in with the Huron Fringe Birding Festival which runs on the adjacent weekends. The Huron Fringe is a beautiful area at the southern end of the Bruce Peninsula with among the highest number of breeding species anywhere in the province, from Golden-winged Warblers to Upland Sandpipers to Broad-winged Hawks. If you’re heading to the Festival, why not add a few days onto your trip and help out the Atlas? – or just come for the Square-bash alone. Register for the MacGregor Point Square Bash here.

(Friday June 2 - Wednesday June 7)

At last, a square-bash event in southeastern Ontario! This event takes place in the rich amalgam of habitat along the edge of the Canadian Shield, and is particularly convenient for atlassers from the Kingston and Ottawa areas. It’s right in the core of the Golden-winged Warbler range with Cerulean Warblers and many others a definite possibility. Register for the Sharbot Lake Square Bash here.

(Friday June 9 - Friday June 16)

This will be a canoe-based trip along the historic French River in one of the province’s most gorgeous landscapes at the northeast corner of Georgian Bay. The area is rich in Common Nighthawks and Eastern Whip-poor-wills, Sandhill Cranes, boreal warblers and too many others to list.
