1:00 pm - 4:00 pm
On this field trip, we will spend a couple of hours around the time of low tide experiencing it all first hand, collecting, examining and then returning any creatures to their proper home. The field trip is planned for the Sunday afternoon, but if the forecast for that day is horrible and Saturday is much better, we’ll reschedule for the Saturday afternoon (same time).
The location is Sandy Cove, which is off of Ketch Harbour Road. Sandy Cove Road is in bad shape, so drive slowly. You don’t need a high-clearance vehicle, but you do need to slowly swerve around a number of potholes. Bring sun protection, a hat, a long-sleeved shirt or jacket, and 2 pairs of footwear (one that can get wet/dirty, and one for the ride home).
Field trip to be lead by: Pat Harding and David Patriquin are retired faculty members of the Biology Dept at Dalhousie University. They taught classes in Marine and Terrestrial Diversity and Introductory Biology, amongst others. A favourite field trip was always to a rocky shore in September.
