Shamper’s Bluff

Appreciating Conservation: A tour of Shamper’s Bluff Natural Area

Speaker: Dave Rendell, CPAWS-NL

Dave and Joan Rendell had the good fortune to visit the Shamper’s Bluff Conservancy (New Brunswick); a 110 hectare Nature Conservancy of Canada (NCC) site that overlooks the Saint John River. The reserve’s natural meadows filled with lupines, timothy grass, oxeye daisies and other wildflowers, serve as important habitat for endangered Bobolink birds. Photographer Freeman Paterson, owner and donor of the site, provided a personal tour of the main features of the site, and his approach to maintaining the site in collaboration with the NCC. Dave’s illustrated talk will showcase the natural reserve as an example for conserving natural areas.

Dave is a retired member of the Physics Department at Memorial University who has a long history of promoting the conservation and appreciation of nature in this province.  Among other activities, he served on Nature NL’s board of directors (1985–1993), was a National Trustee for Canadian Parks and Wilderness Society (CPAWS) and currently serves as treasurer for CPAWS-NL .
