Today we visited Kejimkujik National Park and were able to hike around one of Canada's wonderful national parks. From babbling brooks to the dead silence of an old growth forest, it was a sublime place to learn about the ecology specific to this region of Nova Scotia.
During the afternoon, principal investigator Dr. Chris Newman from the University of Oxford trained us to do scat surveys. We scoured several quadrants looking for deer poop, and then he recorded the data. This information allows us to see what the population density of the area is for the white-tailed deer.
Today's mission: Find something that you believe to be interesting or unique about Kejimkujik National Park and post it as a comment. If someone else posts it, you will have to find something new!
