I led a walk with the Young Naturalists on the Bluff Wilderness Trail about lichen. Lichen is a symbiotic relationship between fungi and algae. We simulated a symbiotic relationship by clasping arms with someone behind our backs and walking for awhile. The young naturalists also identified old man's beard and reindeer lichen on the trail.

There are incredible wilderness areas for hiking and canoe-camping in NS. Maggy and I did a Keji-Tobiatic-Keji loop this September. Eel weir, down through Mountain Lake, Peskawa L, up the Shelbourne to Sand Beach Lake then back far side through Cobrielle, Puzzle and N. Cranberry back to Eel weir. Little bit of portage trail hunting and bush-wacking but well worth every scrape and bruise. Happy to give details.
