March field trip – Signs of Spring in Urban Environments

Date/Time

Sunday, March 24, 2019
1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Description

Are you starting to hear Song Sparrows singing in your neighbourhood? Are the Chickadees in your yard singing “Cheese-burg-er” or “Spring-is-here”? Do you feel the days starting to get a bit longer, and the sunlight getting a bit more intense? Nature all around us is starting to respond to those same cues! March is a great time of year to see the seasons starting to change. Far to the south of us, migratory birds, whales, butterflies and sea turtles are feeling the urge to move northward.
Join us on March 24th for a peek into nature’s seasonal changes beginning to take place at two of Dartmouth’s best urban green spaces, Birch Cove Park and Sullivan’s Pond. We’ll walk along trails between the two sites (snow permitting) and will listen to and look at nature’s dynamic seasonal dance. Parking is available at Birch Cove Beach Park at the end of Oakdale Crescent, off of Crichton Ave. Additional parking is available at the Birch Cove entrance at 121 Crichton Ave, Dartmouth. The 2-hour walk will depart from the Birch Cove Beach area, circle Sullivan’s Pond, and return to the Birch Cove parking area.
