Upcoming General Public Events at the Irving Nature Park

Saturday, May 13th, 11:00 AM -1:00 PM: Tidal Pool Search 

Come along with one of the park’s staff to search the tidal pools for different sorts of critters and marine life. We’ll discuss the species found as well as some unique facts about what we find that day throughout the pools. Meet us at west end of Saint’s Rest beach as we commence our tour. Feel free to stay afterwards and walk the beach or any one of the park’s trails.

Saturday, May 27th, 10:00 AM-12:00 PM: Seal Search

Come and enjoy the playful antics of our harbour seals as they jostle for position on the rocks off the Observation Deck. We’ll discuss the natural history of these sea dogs as well as any other feathered friend we may encounter along the way. Meet us at the Seal Observation Deck as we commence our viewing experience. Binoculars will be provided!

Sunday, June 18th, 12:00-2:00 PM: Father's Hike

Join us at the park on Father’s Day where we will take you and Dad on a short hike through our trail system with some neat stories along the way about different animals, and plants! The stuff does have a name and we’ll be glad to share it with you along with some neat facts! After our hike, feel free to stick around the park and perhaps treat your Dad by grilling him a meal on our free gas BBQ’s

Saturday, June 24th, 12:00-2:00 PM: Walk through the Past

Come over to Wolastoq Park (Lancaster Ave, near Simms Corner) and join local historian David Goss as he tells the story of our city area through larger than life personages of the past that have been carved out atop the park grounds! These statues tell the story from our early days in the area and are amplified by Goss through story, poem, and perhaps if you’re lucky, a song or two!

All tours are provided free of charge by J.D. Irving, Limited
