A couple of upcoming events that will be of interest to NSWFS folks:
From Ian Manning:
Just a note to let you know that next Saturday, June 8th, Blomidon Naturalists Society is hosting a mini-bio-blitz in Meadowvale, a super example of a Sand Barren Heathland, a rare and very beautiful ecosystem located in the Annapolis Valley. This habitat is home to a host of fascinating lichens, plants, insects, and more, with many more exciting finds yet to be discovered.
There’s not a lot of Sand Barren Heathland of this quality that’s publicly accessible, so luckily we have the permission of the Deveau family to hold the blitz on their land. A map will be provided to participants, marking the boundary of where we’ll be exploring, note we’re going to stay away from the buildings on the property.
