SEA’s 2nd Annual Winter Frolic Fundraiser @ Harvey Moore Wildlife Sanctuary
Feb 24 @ 11:00 AM – 3:00 PM

A day of fun and frolic at the Harvey Moore Wildlife Sanctuary  ~

The beautiful and popular pondside trails of the Harvey Moore Wildlife Sanctuary will again be the setting for Southeast Environmental Association’s 2nd Annual Winter Frolic Fundraiser taking place on February 24th, 11am-3pm, at 7906 Milltown Cross, PE.

SEA became the new owner of the historical site in January 2017 and have plans to develop it into a key attraction for the area. This annual fundraiser will help support that effort, as well as, provide Island residents a new place to take part in outdoor winter fun activities. 

 

 

The family-fun event is hoping to draw a big crowd and will include:

  • beautiful Belgian, horse-drawn sleigh rides, by MacLeod’s Sleigh Rides,
  • a chance to get up close to impressive birds of prey from Island Falconry Services,
  • an opportunity to try out snowshoeing with equipment provided by Eastern Sports and Recreation Council, and
  • trying your hand at archery with Archery Tag PEI.

 

As a special attraction we’ll have well-known, local sculptor, Abe Waterman to give a demonstration of his ice-sculpting art skills.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Additional activities include:

  • guided bird tours with a local birding enthusiast,
  • learning how to identify animal tracks in the snow,
  • seeing an ‘Animals of PEI’ display hosted by of Community, Lands & Environment,
  • taking a lesson in building a wilderness survival shelter,
  • learning how to build an owl nest (can purchase for $25).
  • Stream bugs’ display and indicator water testing by Holland College EAST students,
  • learning about winter photography with a local photography enthusiast, and
  • the chance to win in a 50/50 draw.

 

A day in the outdoors would not be complete without a blazing bonfire and hot vegetarian chili, cook-your-own hotdogs, hot chocolate and/or hot apple cider (cost $6)! A great way to chase away the February blues.

People will also learn about SEA and its work in environmental education, restoration and preserving the Harvey Moore Wildlife Sanctuary.

Admission: Adult – $12, Under 12 – $7, and Family – $35 (4 max) each additional family member $5.

SEA Members: $5 discount
