BelleIsle Marsh

What a glorious day today.  The temperature reached 20C and the sun was warm.  As promised, we set out today with camera and gps unit.  This google map provides the location and coordinates.

This is a great walk on level ground that skirts cultivated fields, the Annapolis River and open water areas in the marsh.  In fact, this part of the BelleIsle Marsh is a joint effort between local farmers, Ducks Unlimited and the province of Nova Scotia to provide wetland habitat for ducks. It was established under the North American Waterfowl Managment Plan with a number of partners.  The sign on site actually has six logos, so the credit should really go to to all of them.

Today we followed a new path and discovered another way to walk the dykes at BelleIsle.  We’ll be back for sure.

be sure to climb the dykes to see the duck "ponds"
