The Chignecto Naturalists’ Club is holding a field trip to Fort Folly First Nation. The Fort Folly community has built several trails through the woods. One trail has interpretive signs about medicinal plants which can be found there. The Cultural Trail has interpretive signs featuring various aspects of indigenous culture. The woods surrounding the trails abound with birds and forest plants.

Meeting Places:
All participants should meet at the parking lot behind the Sackville Post office, for carpooling.

Directions:
If you wish to travel to the location yourself, take the Bernard Trail Rd. which is just before Dorchester when travelling on Route 106 from Sackville. Then drive about 1 km along this road until you see the large Bingo Hall on your left. There is parking there and the trail head is close by. Please be at the parking lot by 8:20am.

Bring:
Binoculars, a scope if you have one, and field guides or apps. And, as always, dress in layers and wear footwear suitable for possible wet terrain. NOTE: There will be lots of mosquitoes so bring bug spray or a bug jacket.

Duration:
This is a half day trip and will last until noon.

Difficulty:
This trip is on fairly flat terrain, although it may be a bit wet in places. Accordingly, it is classified as ‘easy.’
