"This year the NatureNS weekend get-together will be at the gorgeous KC Irving Environmental Science Centre at Acadia University in Wolfville, with rooms, meals, hiking, and nature just steps away. NSWFS is a member group of NatureNS. This is a social, learning, and outdoor experience event for naturalists. On Friday night, registration will be followed by a wine and cheese reception. Saturday morning will feature the usual early-morning nature walks and breakfast, followed by informative and entertaining illustrated talks by two esteemed experts in their fields: Rob Raeside (Acadia U.) and Donna Crossland (Parks Canada). The afternoon will feature a choice of field trips. That evening we will participate in the Farmworks May Flavours Gala Dinner Ð a banquet of locally sourced farm products in a variety of dishes created by local chefs.
