Two June Events
Our June meeting will be a Walk Around Mundy Pond
June 16 @ 6:30 pm
Join Nature NL for a guided nature walk around Mundy Pond on Thursday, June 16 at 6:30 pm. Megan Boucher will talk about the birds that historically frequent the area, hopefully locating some of them during our walk. We will also give a short overview of the history of the Mundy Pond community with a look at the changes to the pond itself over the past century. We will meet in the parking lot across from the Mews Center.
NatureNL has an annual short fieldtrip on Mount Scio to view the pink lady slipper orchids. Initially the walk was led by Charlie Horwood, a long-time natural historian and a founding member of NatureNL. Since his death, we have continued the traditional outing as the Charlie Horwood Memorial Lady Slipper Walk. While the re-growth and development of trails in the area have markedly reduced their numbers, we normally see several hundred blooms in the 75 minute easy walk.
Meet leader Allan Stein on Saturday, June 18, 2016 at 10:00 am at the MUN Vivarium Parking Lot, off Mount Scio Road, opposite and a bit east of the MUN Botanical Garden entrance. Park in the paved lot off that roadway, on the right very near Mount Scio Road.
