November field trip – Flag Pond

Date/Time

Saturday, November 28, 2015
1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Description

Flag Pond Coastal Access Park was opened in 2012 and provides access to a wonderful pond habitat, cobbly beach and rock outcrops. Our field trip will have a geological slant, but we will also look for plants and animals in and around the pond. We will explore why the pond exists and why the beach is made of cobbles. You will also get the chance to see 500 million year old rocks (that’s older than the dinosaurs!) and learn about glaciers that once covered most of Canada around 20,000 years ago.

Our special guest field trip leader will be Lynn Dafoe (geologist, and member of the Atlantic Geoscience Society).

We will meet at the park at 1pm, and stay there till 3pm. Dress warmly (and bring a warm drink too?). Send a quick email to Karen at ynchalifax at yahoo.ca to register.
