Chignecto Naturalists’ Club POND HOP field tripOctober 13
All are welcome to join the CNC on Saturday 13 October for a “Pond Hop” field trip.
What: The Club has not explored the lagoons and ponds of the Memramcook and Dorchester areas in recent memory. We plan to rectify that! We will start with the Memramcook lagoon and then CNC member Louise Nichols will lead us to her favourite spots in those areas. We’ll be looking for fall migrant birds and autumn flora, and will visit as many ponds and lagoons as we have time for.
When: Saturday 13th October from 8:30 am to 2:30 pm.
Where: Meet at 8:15 am in the parking lot behind the Sackville Post Office for carpooling and for a prompt 8:30 am departure.
Who: All are welcome. Membership in the CNC is not necessary. You just need enthusiasm for the outdoors! Experienced naturalists are always happy to share their knowledge with those who are just beginning.
Bring: This trip extends into the afternoon, so bring a lunch and extra water. It’s hard to say how wet it will be underfoot, so wear sturdy, waterproof footwear. Layered clothing is always a good idea. Bring binoculars and, if you have one, a scope.
Difficulty: Access to the trails around the ponds is relatively flat and thus this trip is classed as “easy.”
Rain Date: If Saturday the 13th October is rainy, the trip will be postponed until the next day – Sunday 14th October – with the same times and itinerary. A notice will be sent to advise if there’s a change. Check CNC’s facebook page for updated information (www.facebook.com/groups/ChignectoNaturalistsClub/)
