Lambton Wildlife Inc at Sarnia’s Hobbyfest

The Sarnia Hobbyfest was held on July 17, 2016 at Centennial Park.  The Lambton Wildlife booth was one of about forty on display.

The crowd did not appear to be very large, but that could have been due to the large area covered by the…

“Crown Jewels” of Bird World Visit Canatara

Spring has arrived and many of our flights of fancy have turned to the skies and the colorful migrants which are slowly making their way north through Sarnia.

Canatara Park is a terrific spot to watch birds. (more…)
