A Bioblitz at Kejimkujik Seaside!
July 14, 2019
Come for a Bioblitz at Kejimkujik Seaside on Sunday, July 14th! Our object will be to find as much wildlife as possible and record our observations on iNaturalist. You can do this on your own, by creating an account at www.iNaturalist.org and recording your Sunday “finds!”
If you’d like to join a researcher, sign up for one of our two guided activities. These activities are 3.5 hours in length and best suited to individuals or families with children aged 10 or more. For more information or to reserve your spot call 902-682-2772.
Activities begin at 11 am at the head of St. Catherine’s River Beach – a 3.2 km hike from the parking lot. Please allow adequate time to get to the meeting point.
You can expect a 6.5 to 9.5 km self-guided hike round-trip depending on the activity you sign up for.
Plover Discoveries: (Maximum 12 people)
Join Parks Canada staff in conducting a Piping Plover survey at St. Catherine’s River Beach. Participants will walk the entire length of the beach and return to the head of the beach by 2:30 pm. Please bring a lunch, lots of water, binoculars and cameras. We currently have three pairs of plovers at St. Catherine’s River Beach!
Intertidal Investigations: (Maximum 30 people)
Join Parks Canada staff in searching the rocky tidepools at low tide. Collection bins, identification guides and magnifying glasses will be available to help with searching. Please bring a lunch, lots of water, any identification guides you might have, and cameras. This guided activity will end at 2:30 pm. We may even be able to find the infamous “popcorn” green crabs!
