Spring Ephemerals Field Trip
A field trip to Fairmont Trail
in Antigonish, Sat. May 11 (Rain Date: Sun. May 12) 2013.
Meet at the trail head at 10:00 hrs. Duration 1-3hrs.or longer, depending on what we find.
Please register with Charles Cron 902 477 8272 by Wed May 8
so we can carpool, or make last minute changes if required for weather etc. If time permits we may also visit Browns Mountain for spring beauty and other spring ephemerals, in the afternoon.
This will probably take all day but some may wish to leave early so will do this in two separate parts.
We hope to be joined by Randy Lauff and other local naturalists from the Antigonish area. This will be a 2-3hr.drive from Halifax, so we will need to leave early (07:00 hrs.) and not expect to be back in Halifax before dark (16:30 hrs or later). Bring lunch, snacks, water, camera, binoculars and dress for the weather.
"To get to the Fairmont Ridge Trail, exit the Trans-Canada Highway
at Antigonish and follow the green "H" signs towards the hospital on
Route #337. Keep travelling on #337 towards Cape George for about 12
minutes. The trail head and parking lot will be on your left."
