Join us for this amazing weekend of free programming for youth. (Costs associated with the weekend are meals and accommodation)
For the Youth Program we will have some great activities from local groups including:
- Katie McLean from Clean Annapolis River Project’s (CARP’s) will lead a game that highlights the life history of wood turtles and the reasons they are at risk in Nova Scotia.
- Staff from Mersey Tobeatic River Institute will lead us in building nest cages for turtles and sampling benthic invertebrates (mud bugs) from the lake. If their bat program gets up and running this summer they will also show us their handheld device that makes bat calls audible.
- We will also be doing some activities on our own including “bird geocaching”, learning about migrating birds and making bird masks, and showing them off in a migration parade for the adults.
Other weekend events include a sing a long with Little Miss Moffat and a campfire chat with Frank Meuse and shalan Joudry from Stone Bear. Of course there is always morning birding walks, evening stargazing and amazing field trips each afternoon.
Milford House has offered us a great package of $156pp (taxes included) for Youth rates ages 6-12 and Adult rates are $237pp (there is also a $20 program fee for adults but no fee for youth program]. This package included a social Friday night, two breakfasts and lunches, a banquet dinner and snack breaks plus two nights accommodation. Registration deadline is April 20th for this package at Milford House. There are many other places to stay close by in Annapolis Royal and options to attend just programming and purchase individual meals at Milford as well.
