2015 Festival of Nature - Discover Chignecto - June 5 - 7

Starting March 17, 2015 - Ending June 8, 2015

Joint Meeting of Nature New Brunswick, Nature Nova Scotia, and Young Naturalists Clubs of both N.B. and N.S.

(Details at the Nature New Brunswick Website http://Naturenb.ca)

The Chignecto Isthmus, connecting New Brunswick and Nova Scotia, is a remarkable and art-inspiring stretch of land that separates the Bay of Fundy from the Northumberland Strait. Sandy beaches, rocky coves, nutrient-rich mud flats, woodlands and old forest growth, fresh and salt water marshes – they are all here in an area that is as diverse in history as it is in natural beauty and wonder. The Chignecto Naturalists’ Club, your hosts for the 2015 Festival of Nature, along with Nature NB and Nature NS, are excited to invite you to “discover” this spectacular area of the Maritimes. Come join us and search the busy flyways for migrating seabirds and songbirds, resident and transient raptors, maybe get a glimpse of a Moose! Explore beautiful and rare flora, chase some butterflies, and hike some fossil cliffs, old railways and Acadian dykes too!

The Tantramar
Veterans Memorial Civic Centre at 182 Main Street, Sackville

will be the hub for the 3 day weekend of June 5-6-7th, with
registration, morning breakfast and field trip meeting locations,
Friday night AGM’s, on-site presentations/workshops and Saturday
