2009 AGM weekend: 13–14 June at Grand Pré National Historic Site
Join your fellow naturalists on Saturday, June 13 and Sunday, June 14 for a weekend of camaraderie and exploration.
We'll be spending the weekend in the Wolfville area, sharing some events with the Nova Scotia Nature Trust on Saturday. Later Saturday afternoon, we have our own field trip lined, up with Sherman Boates to explore some dikes and adjacent areas near Grand Pré. That evening we will count swifts, look at the stars, and perhaps do. a little owling.
On Sunday, we'll meet at the Grand Pré National Historic Site for breakfast, a talk on endangered species, and the AGM. Sunday afternoon, we have a couple of exciting field trips, lined up. (See thedetailed schedule page.)
There is no conference fee, but you are on your own for meals and accommodation. Nature Nova Scotia will provide a light breakfast on Sunday to participants. We hope to get a few tables together at a restaurant in Wolfville for Saturday supper to be close to the Robie Tufts Nature Centre chimney for the Chimney Swift show at sundown. And.for Sunday lunch before the field trips, we encourage you to bring a picnic lunch.to enjoy on the beautiful Grand Pré grounds.
