Wetheads travel to the Gulf of Maine Institute

On July 2nd five Wetheads travelled to Cornwallis, Nova Scotia for The Gulf Of Maine Institute. This conference brought together teams from New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Massachusetts and New Hampshire to learn about environmental issues affecting the Gulf of Maine. The Wetheads presented their research on waterfowl banding at the Centre and shared their project goals for the future. They also participated in field activities where they learned about topics such as saltmarsh restoration, aquatic invertebrates as bio-indicators and development of natural areas as interpretative sites. During the week the students also had an opportunity to experience local First Nation customs and learn about their connection to waterways and nature in the region. The Wetheads created new friendships and had a great week in Cornwallis!
