The Nature Trust of New Brunswick conserves land throughout the province in the form of nature preserves, many of which are accessible and open to the public. For this Festival of Nature event, we would like to encourage participants to step outdoors and discover these natural spaces by creating and distributing self-guided tours for ten nature preserves. Each self-guided tour will include information on the history of the nature preserve, a map of the hiking trails, rare and interesting species and landmarks, and more! Our hope is that participants will find this event an opportunity to safely reconnect with the outdoors and learn more about the natural spaces in their own community.

Guaranteed sightings! Starting on the outskirts of Saint John, travelling along the scenic Kennebecasis Valley and, via ferry, to the Kingston Peninsula, the complex geological history of southern New Brunswick comes to life.  The main rock types we learned about in elementary school (can you remember them? Igneous, sedimentary and metamorphic…) are all represented. Visiting about five sites, we will see and even stand on an ancient carbon capture project, a fast-flowing river system at the base of an ancient mountain range and a solidified pile of volcanic ash. As well, we will see evidence of the “recent” Ice Age. Learn how the age of rocks is determined and maybe get to hold a tiny piece of the oldest rock yet found on our planet.

A two to three kilometer trail walk around the cove which features mixed woods and wetlands. The trail is hilly but good underfoot. This is an excellent birding area for many species of woodland birds but also some ducks and other bird species. This walk is open to all and will include experienced birders to act as guides. Binoculars are recommended but not required. May be cancelled due to heavy rain.
Kids welcome!

The Kennebecasis Park Lagoons typically hold a good variety of ducks along with flycatchers, swallows, warblers and sparrows. The Bishop’s Lands Trails host numerous warbler species, finches, sparrows, flycatchers, thrushes and more. Time and energy permitting, we may move on to the Bicentennial (Carpenter Pond) Trail – a short but very productive birding trail. The event may be cancelled if there is steady rain.  Light showers will not be a problem.  A decision will be taken as the group assembles on the morning of the outing.
