Nature Moncton field trip

This tree nursery and research facility is a site we often drive by but few of us realize the significance of the research being done there and how it affects us all now and in the future.

This is an opportunity to witness some of the state of the art projects underway and being tested.

A few of the subjects that will be introduced to participants:

-Auto acoustic recording devices to collect information on species of birds breeding in an area

-Deer and Moose studies

-Identifying fungi that may biologically control spruce budworm

-Vertical agriculture-(raising agricultural crops in layers within a building using LED light spectrums)

-Developing trees that can mature in 32 to 35 years instead of 60 to 80 years

-Salmon and trout hatchery

-Microscopic look at tree seed embryos

-Use of biological controls to reduce pesticide use

-And more…………
