There will be a Guided Hike at the Nicols Lake Trail – Saturday, April 30
This event is co-hosted with the Nova Scotia Museum for the 2022 City Nature Challenge
Sean Haughian from the Nova Scotia Museum will lead participants through these lichen and moss-rich habitats to boost their knowledge and species counts for the City Nature Challenge. Habitats we will see include wet conifer forest, upland forest, lakeshore, and streamside. An upland mixed hardwood forest is nearby down a slightly more rugged trail. Our focus will be on the lichens and bryophytes. Highlights include our provincial lichen, blue felt lichen.
