    La conservation des terres signifie préserver des espaces naturels pour les générations futures, afin que nos enfants puissent y apprendre tout en s’amusant.

  • #WildlifeWednesday – Downy woodpeckers (Picoides pubescens) reside in New Brunswick year-round, so you might catch a glimpse of one this winter.

    This particular bird that we photographed last week is a female. Do you know how to tell the males and females apart?
    #MercrediFaune – Les pics mineurs (Picoides pubescens) demeurent au Nouveau-Brunswick toute l’année, vous aurez donc peut-être la chance d’en apercevoir cet hiver.

    Cet oiseau photographié la semaine dernière est une femelle. Savez-vous ce qui différencie les mâles des femelles?

  • In September, Artist Michael McEwing accompanied board member and chair of the stewardship committee Walter Emrich on an aerial monitoring trip over several of our Fundy Isle nature preserves and some others in the area that are difficult to access on a regular basis.

    Do you recognize any of the places in the pictures?

    See more images on his project blog here:

  • #WildlifeWednesday – Now here is a neat bird that is seldom seen – the Yellow Rail (Coturnicops noveboracensis). It can be found in wet fields and marshland in New Brunswick throughout the summer during its breeding season. It has a distinct call that is described as a ‘clicking’ sound.

    Have you ever seen or heard a Yellow Rail? If so, consider yourself lucky because they are known for being very secretive!
