Welcome Winter, Halifax with birds and Dickens, long nights and talking trees.

1. The Young Naturalists Club will once again participate in the longest running citizen science project in the world – the Christmas Bird Count!

Helped by special guests from the Nova Scotia Bird Society, bird spotters will be rewarded with warm apple cider, treats, and prizes! Meet at Point Pleasant Park at the far end of the lower parking lot, near the container pier, of at 9:30. To register, email YNC Halifax Chapter Coordinator, Karen McKendry at

Neptune Theatres Family Series has Halifax feeling fabulously festive! Head to Neptune for Dickens’ A Christmas Carol – running till December 28 – A heartwarming holiday classic for the whole family. Dickens’ A Christmas Carol is brought to life once again in this hilarious and haunted holiday experience.
