Chain Lakes Wilderness Area Field Trip

June 15 @ 10:00 - 16:00

Join us for an off-trail excursion into the new protected area being proposed by the BNS. You will get to explore and wander through some of the very few small pockets of old growth forest in Kings County, with lots of interesting plants, trees and creatures. You will be traversing small paths and bushwhacking. We have done the route before and will avoid thickets. You should be in reasonable walking shape and we will cover around five-six km. Bring good footwear, a daypack, lunch, and clothes for any weather eventuality. Bugs are to be expected. Include binoculars as we can also document species we observe in the area.

The trip is free, but space is limited and you must reserve a spot ahead by e mailing: Peter.Wallace@Dal.Ca. Peter will follow up with more details for the day. June 16 is a rain date. The group will carpool and the carpool meet up will be the commuter parking lot at exit 13/route 12/Kentville. It is on the southeast corner of the exit. Higher bottom vehicles are best for the actual trip.
