September event No. 2 – Backlands hike and trail build


Sunday, September 24, 2017
1:00 pm - 4:00 pm


The Purcells Cove (/Herring Cove) Backlands! Perhaps you’ve heard about them in the news… now experience them for yourself. Come and learn about the fascinating Jack Pine barrens of the Backlands, and then take part in building the trails in the area. The first half of our field trip will be a hike exploring the Jack Pine barrens and their ecology, the second half we will help the McIntosh Run Watershed Association with their on-going trail building project. Come ready to hike, and build (e.g. wear boots or sturdy shoes, and bring work gloves if you have them).

We will meet at a trail entrance near Spryfield. Register with Karen at ynchalifax[at]yncns[dot]ca for the exact directions to the meet-up location.
