“Sable Island: Canada’s newest National Park”

Canada’s newest National Park, Sable Island, off the coast of Nova Scotia may be difficult to arrange a visit to and chances are many of us may never get that opportunity. That is about to change on April 20, 2021 when the Nature Moncton April meeting will pay a virtual visit to this unique place guided by Greg Stroud, a veteran to guiding naturalists.

Sable Island is home to special members of Mother Nature’s wildlife community. Yes, the special feral horses taken to Sable Island since the mid 1700’s are still present and surviving this unique environment. Walrus are no longer present; however, some seal species call it home, and sharks visit the area with seals in mind. It is also the summer breeding ground of the Ipswich Sparrow, a subspecies of the Savannah Sparrow.

Greg Stroud, Operations Coordinator for Sable Island National Park Reserve, who lives on Sable Island 6 months of the year and is intimately familiar with it, will be our private guide to showcase this special place to us.

Greg is no stranger to guiding naturalists. Greg has been a professional Nature guide for various tour companies as well as worked at various positions at National Parks across Canada. Greg is an avid birder and when not birding can be found canoeing or kayaking in the backcountry or exploring on his mountain bike where he lives in Annapolis Valley, Nova Scotia.

This not to miss presentation will be virtual due to Covid 19 restrictions. The link for anyone anywhere to join will be posted on the Nature Moncton BlogSpot a few days before the presentation.
