It is Summer Festival Season for SAM
SAM Communities know how to celebrate summer! From the Garnish Bakeapple Festival, to the Bonavista Church Street Festival, to the Lewisporte Mussel Bed Soiree, everyone takes advantage of the short season to celebrate culture, food, family and friends. More and more municipalities are adding eco-tourism to their long list of summer must-dos.
This summer, SAM Staff were invited by two community summer festivals to deliver environmental stewardship programming. As part of Bonavista's National Wetland Conservation Fund
, SAM Staff delivered a wetland program entitled "Bringing Back the Birds: O'Dea's Pond Eco-Walking Tour"
during the Bonavista Church Street Festival, which boasts 46 events. Over 30 people were in attendance and participated in wetland games, a guided nature walk, and learned how to become environment stewards in their own community!
