Looking for an opportunity to help protect forest habitat? Join us for a day of species data collection at the Nature Conservancy of Canada’s (NCC’s) Salmonier Nature Reserve.
NCC’s Salmonier Nature Reserve is known for its large stands of boreal forest and natural shoreline, which provides habitat for populations of at-risk species, such as blue felt lichen and red crossbill. We need your help in identifying plants, birds, and other species on this new property to help us manage it and have a higher overall impact on local conservation efforts.
Join us for a day of exploring this beautiful natural area to look for as many species as we can find. Surrounding yourself with avid naturalists; this will be a great opportunity to learn more about conservation planning and its impact on local wildlife. We'll be dividing into small groups to identify the plants and birds across the property. More experienced naturalists will be paired with those who are working on developing their identification skills.
