Advanced Notice – Joint RALU/TBFN Field Trip, Sat. Sept. 19th.
Last year the field trip took the road through Kakabeka and then up the Kaministiquia valley, along the Dog Lake Moraine and ending on the shores of Dog Lake.
This year we will follow the Current River north to the Mackenzie Inter-Lobate Moraine and turn west to traverse the Lappe Delta, a "perched" delta with no present source of flow, formed at the junction of the Marks and Dog Lake Moraines into the waters of Lake Kaministiquia, its highest shoreline at 1500'. We shall then follow the road northwest along the inner side of the Dog Lake Moraine, looking at some of the overflow channels poring melt water over the moraine crest into Lake Kaministiquia, ending again on the shore of Dog Lake.
As usual, the trip will begin at the Redwood Ave. end of the car park of the Northwood Mall, leaving at 9.00pm.
Details will follow closer to the event.Posted on March 4, 2020
