Bird Walks with Williams Lake Conservation Company: Shaw Wilderness Park

10:00 AM – 11:30 AM
Captain William Spry Public Library


Hiking and walking outside is an excellent way to de-stress and stay healthy. Even if you walk with us just to get out of the house, your reward will be a fun and easy way to be healthier, relax more, and feel a deep sense of peace. Walking is good for the body and mind, often lasting long after the walk is finished.

On this date, you get a chance to explore a part of the Shaw Wilderness Park, a new ecologically diverse green space that is 153-hectare in size. The walk will take you along the shores of Williams Lake, which is an urban, yet preciously wild lake. Fulton Lavender, a local bird identification expert from Williams Lake Conservation Company, will lead the walk, share his knowledge of key habitats for birds in this park, and share hints for your most effective bird-watching. Located on the edge of the Purcells Cove Backlands, this park is a home for many species of birds including the Common Loon, Bald Eagle, and numerous songbirds.

How to participate

Wear comfortable shoes and bring water with you. Participants may bring binoculars or small cameras only, although neither is necessary. 

Please be aware that tick season is upon us. Wear long pants and tuck your pants into your socks to discourage ticks.

Meet by 9:45 AM in the parking lot entrance of the Shaw Wilderness Park, off of Purcells Cove Rd (across from Royal Nova Scotia Yacht Squadron). Bus access is available.

Registration is open until the start of the event.
