Co-ordination of the field day will be in partnership with ACAP-CB.

There are three sites where you can participate: St. Peters, Eskasoni and Grand Narrows.

What to experience:

The goal for Bras d’Or Watch Field Day is to inform citizens about aspects of the unique ecology of the Bras d’Or Lakes and provide them with some target subjects (ie: alien species and common birds).   Bras d’Or Watch field day activities have been designed to appeal to all ages, all levels. Identification sheets are being made up and will be distributed to all site coordinators.  Kits holding necessary equipment, safety vests for volunteers and a sign for the road will also be provided.
