Weekly topic description: Join Sue Penney, an experienced Education Coordinator with Shubenacadie Provincial Wildlife Park,  on a “Wild Walk” at Thomas Raddall Provincial Park, which will traverse a forested trail down to the beach. Along the way, she will be discussing the components of the local ecosystem, including, rocks, lichens, mosses, trees, shrubbery, and tidal pool life and the other wildlife signs that we encounter.

Registration: To register, contact Jessica at or (902) 440-5503.

About Wild Wednesdays: Wild Wednesday involves a series of free educational guided nature hikes (approx. 1-2 hours) for kids and families, but accessible to people of all ages. 

Previously, Wild Wednesday has been offered by the HLC at only one location. This year, Wild Wednesdays will be expanded to three locations, offering more opportunities to hike/explore various ecosystems in the area, including: 1) the HLC, 2) Thomas Raddall Provincial Park, and 3) Carter’s Beach. While walking/hiking easily accessible trails and/or coastline, each week focuses on a different theme. For more information about the Wild Wednesday program, click here
