About this Event

Camden East Alvar (near Camden East and Odessa) with Amanda Tracey on Saturday, June 8th 2019 (9:50am)

The Camden East Alvar is located southeast of the town of Camden East. Loyalist township recently donated a parcel of land in this area to the Nature Conservancy of Canada to protect in perpetuity. The Camden East Alvar is part of the Napanee Plain, the Camden East Alvar Area of Natural and Scientific Interest and are considered a significant alvar by Catling and Brownwell (1995). Join NCC staff on a tour of this new and special property and hear about the interesting history and stewardship challenges, as well as restoration and improvement plans for the future. Fields of Prairie Smoke and Balsam Ragwort alive with Giant Swallowtails and other insects will take your breath away. Denser areas enclosed with red cedar offer a unique opportunity to see many species of lichen and moss among other unique alvar plants. The walk will be a slow pace with fairly moderate terrain, although localized flooding is likely to still occur on the site so rain boots are encouraged.

Note: For those that register through Eventbrite, we have allowed for a refund period of up to 7 days before the trip. That means you may still sign up for trips ahead of time even if you aren’t sure of your plans, and as long as you request a refund through Eventbrite before that time, you will receive a full refund. Cancelling your Eventbrite ticket also allows us to open your spot on the trip to people on the wait list. If an event is listed as SOLD OUT, you can still put yourself on the wait list, and if someone else gives up their spot, we will contact the waitlist to offer the spot(s). As always, you will need to sign the trip waiver, which from now on will be provided by the trip rep at the start of every trip.
