Location: Grand Lake Meadows
Leader: Gart Bishop
Gart Bishop kept a packed house audience in awe at the photos of unique flora in the Grand Lake Meadows area at a Nature Moncton meeting in April. The opportunity for a hands-on visit is waiting. Explore the flora of Grand Lake Meadows on Saturday, July 28 and get the chance to touch New Brunswick’s smallest plant. We will see two species of poison ivy, sweet flag, silver maples, many pond weeds, begger ticks, bryozoa, and potentially much more.  And wherever there is good plant habitat, there is also good bird habitat, so we will have a chance to check out the birds too while we’re there.Those who are interested in participating in this field trip are asked to register with Louise Nichols at  We would like to have as much car-pooling as possible which is good for the environment and good for socializing with fellow club members!  When you register, please also indicatewhether you would be willing to drive others OR if you need a drive just so we can ensure we have enough vehicles.  Those who are joining others for car-pooling and leaving from Moncton will meet in the parking lot of the coliseum on July 28th at 8:30.  Otherwise, we will all meet with Gart at Turner’s One-stop store parking lot at 10:00 at Jemseg, located just south of the TransCanada Highway on Route 339.Make sure to bring drinking water, lunch, insect repellent, raincoat if indicated, rubber boot footwear, binoculars, and magnifying lens (if you have a pair).Please note that there will be a maximum of 20 participants for this trip.
