Have you ever wanted to visit Sable Island to see the wild horses? Not only is Sable Island the home to about 500 horses, but it is also home to the largest colony of grey seals in the world! Let me share my trip with you. Experience Bald Dune. Learn about the succession of plants that happens when sand dunes change over time. Come and see the beauty of one of Canada’s most recent National Park Reserves.

Carolyn Mallory is a writer, co-author of Common Plants of Nunavut, and author of Common Insects of Nunavut. Her latest publication, Painted Skies, is a picture book about a child’s first experience with northern lights. She is hard at work on more picture books for children and a novel. Carolyn is also a watercolour artist and loves to depict the North in her work. Carolyn and her husband Mark raised their three children in Iqaluit before moving to Canada’s east coast in 2011.

She works for Adventure Canada during the summer as a guide, lecturer, and watercolour instructor. Her trips take her to Greenland, the Canadian Arctic, and to Sable Island.

Join us for this free Acadia Lifelong Learning Brown Bag Lunch. This will be the last Brown Bag Lunch session of the term.
