CANCELLED (Bird Migration and Bat Hibernation – getting ready for winter)

Date/Time

Saturday, November 23, 2013
10:05 am - 12:05 pm

Description

We will have to re-schedule this event some other time since the presenter is unable to attend this event. Check back for a later date.

Nova Scotia is stopping place for many migratory bird species. Learn about this amazing phenomenon that happens twice a year in our region. Mark Elderkin from the Wildlife Division of the Department of Natural Resources will be our guest speaker and he will speak about bird adaptation to our region and why there are so many species.

We will also learn about the bats in our region and how they survive the cold by hibernating. The bats are in real trouble in our region due to a fungal infection called the white nose infection and if you see any bats please report the sighting to NS DNR.

We will be meeting at theĀ KC Irving Environmental Science CentreĀ @ Acadia University for this meeting. The building is located on University Avenue in Wolfville. Parking is across the road from the building. Go in the main doors and to the staircase to the left. We will meet you downstairs.

We will be outside in the botanical garden a bit so wear weather appropriate clothes and bring a drink and snack.

Also… the Annapolis Valley Chapter is going to hold a similar meeting with Bernard Forsyth (a birder and naturalist in the area) the weekend before (Nov. 16) at the same place if you are interested in attending. Look under the Annapolis Valley Chapter for their events list.
