Volunteers wanted for owl survey

Besides the Christmas bird count (see table for results), the Rainy River Valley Field Naturalists participate in the Nocturnal Owl Survey, which involves travelling along a pre-determined route year after year in April. The club has five routes. We begin half an hour after sunset and end at midnight, stopping every 1.6 km to play a CD of owl calls and to listen for owls.

Multiple local strikes set this week

All students in the Rainy River District will be impacted by strikes this week.

The Ontario Secondary School Teachers' Federation (OSSTF), Ontario English Catholic Teachers' Association (OECTA) and Elementary Teachers' Federation of Ontario will be undertaking one-day strike actions in response to stalled negotiations with the provincial government.
