About the weekend

Our headquarters for the weekend, starting with the meet and greet on Saturday night, will be the 
St. Mary’s River Association Education and Interpretive Centre 
8404 Highway #7, 
The centre is about a kilometre and a half north of Sherbrooke Village .

Registration will be $20 per person when you arrive. Except for Saturday lunch and Sunday breakfast, you’re on your own for meals. We are planning on eating together for Saturday supper.

We suggest you bring rubber boots – we will be exploring the riparian zone and floodplain of the St. Mary’s River. And there will likely be biting insects, so the usual precautions are advised.

Nature Nova Scotia will provide breakfast on Sunday morning to registered attendees.

Our annual general meeting will take place at 10am Sunday. To vote at the AGM, you must be a current member of Nature Nova Scotia, either as a federate member through a local naturalists club or as an individual member (see the enclosed brochure for more information). You will be able to purchase or update membership at the event.

Our host in Sherbrooke, the St. Mary's River Association, is also hosting its AGM on Sunday, from 2 to 4 pm. Everyone is welcome to attend.
