Shoreline Outing: Trent River Estuary, Sept 26th 2019
The next shoreline outing will be our first estuarine outing.
When: 9:30-11:30 am, Thursday, September 26th. (3.5 foot low tide is 10:15)
Where: Meet at the the end of Carey Place in Royston
What: Surveying the algae, plants and invertebrates around the Trent River Estuary.
Carpool: if looking to carpool, we’ll leave at 9:15 from the old thrifty’s parking lot in downtown Courtenay
Prereading: If interested, shoreline member Betty Brooks and co. put together a marvelous report on life in the Trent river delta and estuary for the Canadian Wildlife Service. This is comprehensive in terms of Birds, Invertebrates, Algae and Plants. I’ll try and repurpose portions into a checklist before we go. Perhaps there has been changes in the intervening 32 years.
Safety Precautions: Boots are advised. Access is via a relatively level trail. Shoreline is level with small pebbles and sand.
See you soon,
