    Army Reserve Road and Charwell Road, Prince Edward County

    May in the IBA

    This is your chance to explore the somewhat famous Gull Pond with members of the South Shore Joint Initiative.  Gull Pond was rich with aquatic foods for native peoples.  It was a fishing hub for the first European settlers.  Now it is popular with hunters, fishers, hikers and birders.  We should encounter many species of migrating Warblers and Thrushes, singing frogs and hopefully a Blanding's Turtle.  Wildflowers will be emerging and we will attempt to identify many of them.  This area is especially rich ecologically with marshes, meadows and wooded areas providing habitat for many species of plants, vertebrates, reptiles and amphibians.  Admission by donation.

    Explore the Hastings Prince Edward Land Trust Miller Family Nature Reserve with members of the South Shore Joint Initiative.    In the early fall we should encounter migrating and indigenous bird species and Monarch butterflies.  There will still be interesting plants and insects to investigate.  The Reserve has lots of forested areas with excellent examples of oaks, cedars and pines.  If possible we will make our way to the shore to investigate the wetland and any waterfowl that are on the lake.  Total distance 5 km.  Admission by donation.
