Memory Lanes Buoy Project

Friday, October 27th, 6:30 PM
Memory Lane Heritage Village,
Lake Charlotte, Eastern Shore, enroute to Clam Harbour Beach
1-877-287-0697
www.heritagevillage.ca

A new, permanent exhibit is opening at Memory Lane Heritage Village.
On display will be a collection of over 120 traditional wooden fishing buoys of Nova Scotia’s Eastern Shore, from Ecum Secum to Three Fathom Harbour. From the colourful, iconic lobster buoys to large “standing” buoys and small cork net floats, these objects demonstrate the ingenuity of the generations of people who have fished along our shores.

The buoy research and exhibit was funded by the New Horizons for Seniors Program.

Free Admission
All are welcome

This exhibit will be a permanent feature of the Heritage Village, which re-opens in May for the 2018 season.

Silent Auction and Banquet Fundraiser

 

Silent Auction and Banquet, October 28th @ 6:00 pm at the Sheet Harbour Lions Centre in support of Eastern Shore Lifestyle Centre.

Tickets Available at Scotiabank – $30 Per Person. Salad, Stuffed Chicken Breast, Rolls, Beverages, Assorted Desserts.

The Sheet Harbour Lions Community Centre, which serves residents of the Eastern Shore and is owned by HRM, requires substantial renovation. HRM has determined that funds have been reserved towards replacing the facility rather than renovating the 40+ year old structure.

A Board has been created, Eastern Shore Lifestyle Centre Committee, chaired by Senator Tom McInnis, with ten committees that are challenged with varying responsibilities which include site selection, building design, programming, funding, fund raising, etc.

We are pleased to announce that we are kicking off our commitment to the new Lifestyle Centre by hosting a Banquet and Auction to be held on Saturday, October 28 , 6 pm, at the Sheet Harbour Lions Centre, 183 Pool Road.
If you’d like to donate please contact a committee member below. We also hope to see you at the event!

Thank you for your anticipated support.

Sincerely,

Janice Christie, Capital and Operating Fundraising Committee Chairperson 902-885-5472; Joanne Lambert, Scotiabank Employee; Committee Members: Alana Gammon, Marilyn Munroe, Janet Abriel, Susan Boutilier, Candace MacKean, Maggie Adams.

Friends of Taylor Head Park Activities

 

The Friends of Taylor Head Provincial Park (FOTHP) organization offers a program of interpreted and guided outings and other events that we hope will enhance the experience of park users. This initiative originates from our strong attachment to Taylor Head Provincial Park and our passion for the natural world.

The guides and interpreters for all activities are volunteers. We have limited resources in terms of the scope and level of assistance that we are able to offer to participants who cannot safely participate without special attention or supervision. In particular, if you have mobility, endurance, or cognitive limitations we ask that you read the program details very carefully to ensure that the activity you choose is right for you. The program includes both easy and demanding events.

All activities are FREE.

If you would like to support the organization and the work we do, purchase a Friends of Taylor Head membership. Annual membership fees are Family $20 and Individual $10.

You need sturdy footwear such as walking shoes, hiking sneakers, or hiking boots. Street shoes or sandal-type footwear with open toes and heels are not suitable for these rough hiking trails. If you have questions about the conditions of the trails, just give us a call.

We have graded our hiking trails as EASY or MODERATE for hikes under 3 kilometers, and DIFFICULT for hikes over 3 kilometers, such as the Headland Trail. Most outings exceed three hours, so do not forget to bring drinking water, something to eat, and appropriate outdoor clothing.

 

BIRDWATCHING: EARLY FALL MIGRANTS

 

 

MAGICAL, MYSTERIOUS, MUSHROOMS

October 22nd: 10:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m.
Meet by the kiosk at the last parking lot.
Level of difficulty – Difficult

Forests wouldn’t grow without them!
Orchids wouldn’t bloom without them!
Some even glow in the dark, and there are more mushrooms in Nova Scotia than there are plants! Throughout history mushrooms have been regarded with fear and fascination – sometimes revered, sometimes hated, but always mysterious.

Join Scott, co-founder of the Halifax Field Naturalists and mushroom expert, on a foray to learn more about this much-maligned group of organisms.

Find out what is fact and what is fantasy, what is edible and what is poisonous and where (and when) to find them. Discover how fungi are absolutely essential to our well-being.

You will encounter rugged terrain so it is advised to wear hiking boots or sneakers. Bring water, snacks or a lunch, and don’t forget your camera.

There is no rain date because mushrooms love moisture, right?

Leader: Dr. Scott Cunningham

PARK EXTENSION ACTIVITIES

October 09– December 04, 2017

Through a partnership agreement between The Friends of Taylor Head Provincial Park and NS Department of Natural Resources, the Park gate is open after the normal October 09 closing date until December 04. The Park typically opens in mid-May, and if the condition of the park road is favourable, an earlier spring opening may be possible. During the extended open period, in the absence of regular park staff, “The Friends” take on responsibility for garbage collection and toilet maintenance.

late season guided hike #1

Saturday, November 4. Time: 10:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m.
Meet at the Bull Beach parking lot
Level of difficulty: Moderate with easy sections

Late autumn is a special time to experience the natural wonders of Taylor Head Park. The air is fresh, cool, and clear. There are no biting insects and lots of elbow room on the trails.

Join us for a walk on the Bull Beach Trail and the Bob Bluff Trail to Psyche Cove Beach (Taylor Head Beach). Our walk continues along the beach to Powers Pond and the Spry Bay Trail, then back to the main parking lot to finish off. Participants will have the option of a shuttle back to the Bull Beach parking lot, or you may choose to walk the Park Road back to your car.

Hiking on exposed coastline in November can be challenging, so good boots and seasonally appropriate clothing is recommended. Bring snacks, lunch, and water.

Leaders: Peter Oickle 902-499-4114  Warren Parsons 902-772-2207.

birdwatching – winter birds

Sunday, November 26 Time: 10:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m.

This will be a leisurely walk to the Headland Trail. At this time of year, we expect to see lots of Eiders, Grebes, Scoters, Dovekies, Guillemots, Mergansers, Harlequin Ducks, Long–tailed Ducks, and Purple Sandpipers.

Hiking on exposed coastline in late November can be challenging, so waterproof boots and seasonally appropriate clothing is recommended. Bring snacks, lunch, and a hot drink. This should be a good warm-up to the Christmas Bird Count. There is no rain date. All birders and nature lovers are welcome.

CHRISTMAS BIRD COUNT

Friday, December 15. Time: 7:30 a.m. to 5:00 pm.
Meet at the Spry Bay Community Hall (opens at 7:30 a.m.)

The Nova Scotia Sheet Harbour (NSSH) Christmas Bird Count is one of about 25 around the province. The count area extends in a circle around Taylor Head Park and from Tangier to Sober Island. All the trails in the park are covered in this survey. Birders are organized into groups from two to four and given designated areas to count.

If you have a bird feeder, you’re also encouraged to send in your count.

Birders will meet after the count, to sum up the day’s count and have a delicious meal at the Spry Bay Community Hall.

These counts are sponsored by the National Audubon Society, Bird Studies of Canada, NS Bird Society and the Friends of Taylor Head Provincial Park Society.

*Please notify Jim or Warren if you plan to attend.
