NATURE MONCTON FIELD TRIP TO WHITE ROCK RECREATION AREA

Date: Saturday, April 23rd

Time: 10:00

Guide: Gordon Rattray

The Nature Moncton excursion on April 23 will be to the White Rock Recreation Area in Hillsborough. This will be a walk going through mostly forested areas, both coniferous and deciduous, in this protected region. We will be looking at the signs of nature emerging from the winter season. The onus will be on the participants to point out evidence of revival and to assist in naming sightings. Spring revival will be most evident with bud and possible leaf generation of trees and shrubs. Lichens will be very easy to spot on trunks and stems. Depending on how the spring season advances, there could be some surprises.

The walk will be led by Gordon Rattray who has extensive knowledge of the recreation site. The walk will be of moderate difficulty and up to 4KM in length. Footwear is most important as places could be still wet from winter melt. Bring a lunch for a lunch break on the trail.

White Rock Recreation Area is 2 KM up the Golf Club Road in Hillsborough. Golf Club Road is a right turn off route 114 -- partway through Hillsborough. We will meet at the entrance to the Recreation Area at 10:00

All are welcome, Nature Moncton member or not.

NATURE MONCTON FIELD TRIP TO THE BAIE VERTE NATURE RESERVE AND PORT ELGIN LAGOON

DATE: Saturday, May 28th (rain date: Sunday, May 29th)
TIME: 9:30 AM
MEETING PLACE: The parking lot of Saint James United Church at the corner of Main St. (Rte 970) and Siddall Rd. in Baie Verte.
GUIDES: Louise Nichols (location) and Roger Leblanc (birds)

The end of May can be a very active time in Nature. While this is the case everywhere there are some spots where the “show” seems to be concentrated. And one of these is certainly the coastal region between Baie Verte and Port Elgin. Situated at the northeastern end of the Isthmus of Chignecto it is clearly on a bird migration route but also harbors vast marsh and coastal habitats that favor a lot of life forms from insects to plants and more. On this field trip, we’ll explore a couple of special spots in this unique region. From the starting point at the church, we will drive down Siddall Rd. until we get to the Baie Verte Nature Reserve, protected by the Nature Conservancy of Canada. We will then walk an easy trail (about 2 km one way) that passes through some marsh areas, open fields, and woods until it finally reaches the beaches of the Northumberland Strait. The area’s diversity is good for birds, but also butterflies, dragonflies, and a variety of plant species. We will pass by an Osprey nest that was active last summer.

Afterward, we’ll drive along Rte 970 to Port Elgin where we’ll stop and visit the lagoon in the centre of town. This lagoon (not widely known) tends to attract a different variety of waterfowl from some other lagoons, with more diving ducks, especially Buffleheads in the spring and fall. The lagoon also attracts swallows to the nest boxes erected at the lagoon and many warbler species to the treed areas around it. If we have time, we can walk a moderately rough trail about half a kilometre through the woods that ends in a marshy area along the shoreline of the Gaspereau River.

Bring lunch and snacks.
All are welcome, Nature Moncton member or not.
