Terry Sprague: Our Natural Heritage
Part of Flashback February, and brought to you by the Friends of Wellers Bay!
Terry’s presentation will draw our attention to the wealth of both natural and human history in Prince Edward County. He will look at the County’s foundation, and how limestone rock, from the finely ground sand at Sandbanks to the impressive limestone shelves along the shore, has played a role in the formation of islands, spectacular cliffs, and collapsed dolines such as Lake on the Mountain.
Hear stories of the famous Ameliasburgh Inlier, the mesa at McMahon Bluff, cattail marshes, wooded swamps, Sandbanks Provincial Park, shipwrecks, waterfalls, and the colourful history of Main Duck Island. We will also look at the South Shore Important Bird Area and the Prince Edward Point National Wildlife Area.
Learn how these areas have all contributed to shape the county we know as Prince Edward. You will leave with a better understanding of why Prince Edward County has become such a tourist haven.
