Events this week!
The N2O Program is a monthly day-trip to the Harrison Lewis Centre for those 55 and older, and their friends and family for short presentations and to take part in guided nature walks, hands-on activities, led discussions, and a lunch.
THIS WEEK: Have you ever discovered an ancient “artifact” on the beach or in the ground? Would you like to learn about what you’ve found? Archaeologists from the Canadian Museum of History and the Nova Scotia Museum are on the South Shore region of Nova Scotia searching for endangered archaeological sites, and you can help.
Bring your found items to the Harrison Lewis Centre, in Port Joli, on Tuesday, August 22 from 10:00 a.m. to 2 p.m. An archaeologist will identify the object and tell you its approximate age. In return, they’ll photograph it and ask you where you found it. You’ll be helping them discover new archaeological sites, and may help them to preserve important sites endangered by climate change.

Every Wednesday afternoon (1-3 pm) the Harrison Lewis Centre hosts Wild Wednesday guided nature walks at neighbouring Thomas Raddall Provincial Park.
This week we'll have Mattew Betts from the N2O giving a short version of his presentation to the campers at Thomas Raddall! Come share the fun - rain or shine! These two hour walks are free. Just stop by the administration building at the park entrance to sign up and find out where each walk begins. All ages welcomed. Children under 12 must be accompanied by an adult.
