Fall hike at the park

Went for a nice hike this morning, it was muggy but the water on the lake was like glass, and as a bonus we met a fairly curious Garter Snake who seemed to like getting his picture taken.

Join us for a Paddle

Kayak/Canoe Roundup

Come on out to join us on the Lake this

Date: Saturday, September 16th,

Time: from 1 pm to 4 pm.

At the new parking lot off Old Sambro Road, we will be entering at the new Canoe/Kayak Launch area.

As part of our Spryfield Harvest Festival, we are hosting a Kayak/Canoe Roundup this year. Whether you canoe or kayak, come join us. This will be the first year of our Roundup, so we hope to continue to promote it and build it up over the years to come, to see how many paddlers we can get out on the lake with us.

Join us for an afternoon of paddling. Meet fellow paddlers from around HRM and explore the lake and shoreline of our beautiful Long Lake.

Please Note: Due to the size of the parking area, we are asking participants to unload their kayak or canoe, then park their vehicle on a side street near by, or in the No Frills parking lot, so we can accommodate everyone.

Hope to see you!!

Lost on: 05/02/2017

Area: Long Lake Park, Halifax, Nova Scotia,

Additional Notes: Benny is usually very good to come to people. He has floppy ears with a bit of orange in them. We are shocked that he did not come when we called him. He’s very sensitive. He keeps moving throughout the woods. Quite a few people have spotted him and he seems fine but then he takes off again. His coat is sort of shaggy, white, and he has a lovely long feathered tail. He’s very sensitive to noise and anything that is sudden
