First Nova Scotia Wildlife Festival 2001
Dates: September 15 & 16, 2001
Theme: Habitat Preservation
Location: Fisherman's Cove, Eastern Passage

The main objective of this event, the first Wildlife Festival ever to be held in the Atlantic Provinces, is to create an awareness and appreciation for the natural world around us and the people helping to protect it -- to celebrate our natural heritage in a way that brings it directly to the communities of Nova Scotia through music, art, nature hikes, boat tours, lectures and demonstrations.

The festival is designed to show our community all that is wonderful about the natural world that we live near. As further development takes place, we all need to remember the natural places and the animals that are living around us which brings so much to our lives.

Events taking place during the two day event include:

  • a puppet show which includes endangered species with local puppeteer Terry Angus;
  • wildlife artists, including photographers, painters, sculptures, woodcarvers, and more will be presenting and selling their work;
  • retail booths from nature-oriented stores and from organizations that have a message about the environment;
  • demonstrations from authorities in their field about animals and their habitats;
  • children's wildlife face painting;
  • demonstrations for children on building bird, bat, and butterfly houses;
  • guided lecture/hiking trips to area wetlands and islands;
  • kayaking and boat rentals;
  • boat tours;
  • booths for colleges that have environmental programs of study;
  • demonstrations for outdoor activities available in Nova Scotia for hiking, bird watching, whale watching, gardening, tree planting, landscape designing for wildlife; and much more.
  • Whale watching, seal watching and bird tours will also be available at site.

If you have any interest in wildlife and the preservation of habitat in Nova Scotia, this is one event you won't want to miss.
