52 Weeks of Flight

52 Weeks of Flight is about BIRDS! Our region is rich with migratory species year round. We have the best environmental mix for widest variety of birds, with our Bay of Chaleur salt water, Restigouche River fresh water and the point where the two meet. Add in the Eel River Marsh Estuary, our protected valleys and sharp cliffs, and we have upped the potential of habitat listings for our feathered friends. With 300 species to discover, we invite you to come Explore Dalhousie!

And to help you find what's happening in the world of birding and habitats, 52 Weeks of Flight has hatched a new Naturalist Club for Dalhousie and area. Meetings are the third Monday of every month (except for July and August, when we're on vacation too), at Dalhousie Regional High School Library, 7pm. For more information, please call the 52 Weeks of Flight Naturalist Club at 506-508-0505.
