Please join the Nova Scotia Nature Trust for a ‘Connecting with Nature’ Event
in partnership with their friends at the Ecology Action Centre:
Conserving and Enjoying the Fire-Prone Backlands
Saturday, September 7th, 10am
The Purcells Cove Backlands contain a vast area of Jack Pine/Broom Crowberry barrens, an ecosystem with many adaptations to fire. It’s not very often (fortunately!) that we get to see these fire adaptations in action in a human lifetime.
Join us for a hike into the Backlands as we explore how it has recovered from a massive fire in the spring of 2009. Learn how several conservation groups are working to protect this globally-rare ecosystem, and are giving people a chance to access it in a sustainable way.
