Flying Squirrel Adventures
May 19, 2018
Flying Squirrel Adventures is a free outdoor nature program for young and old in the heart of the Valley.
Adult Program Theme: Bird Migration and Birding Basics
May is bird migration month and we’ll learn about who is passing through and landing in our region at this time of year. Long time bird observer, James Churchill* will lead the adult outing with facilitation support from Judy Lipp. We have a fun morning planned including tips, tricks and practices to help you become a better birder.
*James Churchill has been paying attention to birds since childhood and fell in love with them while migration monitoring in the Shenandoah Mountains of Virginia. The Kentville Ravine being one of the remaining old forest gems of the Annapolis Valley, James has spent much time birdingis currently Data Manager and Avian Biologist at the Atlantic Canada Conservation Data Centre in Kentville where he focuses on documenting the distribution and status of rare and protected bird species in the Maritimes.
Children’s Program: There Be Dragon’s Here
It will be an extra special morning for the kids as Marina Myra and Emily LeGrand unveil a special Trail Adventure developed especially for the Kentville Ravine. They will go in search of dragons, visit the ancient ones, explore caves and learn about the magic of the Ravine.
