February Hike to Ayers Creek
Join the EAG for its February field trip to Wilikies! This trip will take you to areas less travelled...to Gaynors, along Ayers Creek which provides a beautiful vista of Nonsuch Bay, on to Comfort Hall Estate that housed a sugar plantation back in the day. We will also be able to observe a healthy red mangrove area which is being destroyed for road building. Onwards, to areas where shrimp farming and tobacco farming used to be the order of the day.
Meet at 6:45am to push off at 7am on Saturday 16th February, 2013 on the road leading to Wilikies: pass the old Anglican Church (at the turn-off to Seaton’s) and continue past the service station until you get to a sign that reads "Ace Trucking and Heavy Duty Equipment" (approximately 100 metres after the service station), which is where we will meet. This hike will be easy-moderate and will last for approximately 2 hours. Wear good walking shoes and bring water. This trip will get your heart rate up while exposing you to a bit of history and, of course, important areas of our environment. See you there!
