Hike at the Harvey Moore Wildlife Centre

Last week was our first official outing as the Kings County Homeschool Co-op. We took advantage of the beautiful September weather to conquer a hike at the Harvey Moore Wildlife Centre. It was lovely.

Here are some photos.

I’m looking forward to going back with the older children. While I am glad the young ones enjoyed themselves, my arms were a little sore from carrying the four-year-old for about half of the hike. We saw flocks of geese flying south a few days after our hike, so we may not see any when we return.

If you’re on the island, this place is about five minutes outside of Montague, on the #4. Pack a picnic and head over. It’s worth it.

  1. Hi Jo, my name is Jackie Bourgeois and I am the Executive Director for the Southeast Environmental Association – a local watershed management group which includes the six watersheds of Boughton, Cardigan, Brudenell, Montague-Valleyfield, Sturgeon, and Murray Rivers. I just wanted to say Thnak-you for visiting our Sanctuary. Over the past year, we have been working to improve the trails and are building on some future projects that may include: children’s eco-daycamps, photography workshops, bird identification and monitoring workshops, skiing/hiking and snowshoe outings, and the list goes on. If you would like to learn more about these activities, or would like to coordinate something with us, please feel free to contact me at sea@pei.aibn.com and/or visit our webpage at seapei.org. We are wanting to highlight the Sanctuary as a special place to visit in Kings County, so we really appreciate your posting it on your blog and spreading the word!! Cheers and I hope you come back to visit!! JB

    1. Hi Jackie,

      Thanks! There are a few nature-loving families in the area, and a good sized homeschool group as well. We will be planning future outdoors gatherings this spring and summer, so I will definitely check out the sire you’ve given. The Wildlife Center is a great place. 🙂
