Piping Plover Palooza
Learn more about one of Nova Scotia’s endangered species and what you can do to help!
Saturday, June 25
1 p.m.–4 p.m.
Thomas Raddall Provincial Park
(Ron Lawson Building)
Located on the southwestern shore of Nova Scotia, the Port Joli area contains a rich variety of coastal habitats. The area’s mudflats and dune/beach systems are important feeding and nesting sites for shorebirds. The Nature Conservancy of Canada’s (NCC’s) Sandy Bay property is a known nesting site for the endangered piping plover and the mature coastal forests here are habitat for rare and at-risk lichens.
Join NCC and Birds Canada at Thomas Raddall Provincial Park for a day focused on piping plovers. There will be family-friendly educational presentations about this bird, its habitat, and activities. The event is open to everyone of all ages and backgrounds because we all have a part to play in protecting endangered species!
No pre-registration is required for this FREE event!
