Nature Moncton April Meeting

Grand Lake Meadows Natural Protected Area
Speaker: Gart Bishop

The unique wetlands along the Trans Canada Highway between Jemseg and Upper Gagetown are part of the Grand Lake Meadows. A portion of these wetlands is protected as Grand Lake Protected Natural Area. It is home to a collection of species which are not found elsewhere in the province. Gart Bishop will describe some of these species -- including New Brunswick’s smallest vascular plant -- that make this area so different from other wetlands.
Gart has also agreed to lead a Nature Moncton Field trip this summer to this special area to see in real time many of the species mentioned in his presentation that can be found in this unusual community and that have led to protection of the area. These species will all be emerging and appearing over the next months.
