Annual Nature NL Long Pond Clean-up in Celebration of International Migratory Bird Day

May 6 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

Nature Newfoundland and Labrador is holding our annual clean-up of Long Pond on Saturday, May 6, 2017, from 10 am to 12 pm. Meet behind the “Splash” facility on the south side of Long Pond (behind the MUN School of Business and other campus buildings).

This year, we are using this event to celebrate International Migratory Bird Day! As the theme this year is “Stopover Sites” we are taking this opportunity to clean up the Long Pond shoreline, which provides important nesting and resting habitat for many species of birds, particularly waterfowl. We anticipate that Clean St. John’s will supply garbage bags and collection, but volunteers should bring their own gloves and wear boots.

For more information, email us (naturenl@naturenl.ca).
