Monthly Meeting
When: Mon, Jan. 8, 7:00pm
Where: Mary Oland Theatre, NB Museum, Market Square
Description: At our monthly meeting on January 8, 2018, in the Mary Oland Theatre at the New Brunswick Museum at Market Square, Saint John, we will welcome Tom Raithby presenting: Secrets of the Fundy Footpath The Fundy Footpath is a remote coastal hiking trail that connects Fundy National Park to the Fundy Trail Parkway, near St. Martins. The 50-kilometer trail is narrow and winding, and includes many steep climbs up and down as it follows the coast. Experienced hikers describe it as very “challenging”. Tom will share some notes about the Fundy Footpath, and about a couple of spots in particular. The Footpath is distant and remote, but at the same time, it is near and accessible. The wilderness has been largely untouched since residents left nearly a hundred years ago, but remnants of their time remains, often hidden in plain sight. To a casual observer, it is an amazing stretch of coastal forest and shoreline. For those who make time to explore, this remote area is an outdoor photographers dream, diverse in geography, wildlife, seasons and tides. Every visit reveals something new and interesting and is often full of surprises. All welcome!
