Berry picking -Our berries are the sweetest, freshest tasting berries on earth, grown in some of the most pristine environments imaginable. Our wild, low bush blueberries have been found to have a higher concentration of antioxidants than those found elsewhere, and are only 84 calories per cup. Expect these small, blue circular berries to ripen from late July into early September.
Newfoundland and Labradorís most unique berry is the bakeapple. These small orange and red berries are scattered throughout our provinceís bogs and wetlands, and look strikingly similar in shape and size to raspberries  Schedule an outing for late July or mid August
Newfoundland and Labrador berries are 100% natural, clean and organic. Because our environment is virtually untouched by pollution and development, our berries are free of chemicals, pesticides or genetic modification. Worried about wildlife ruining your fun? There are no skunks, poison ivy, poison oak or venomous spiders in our province.

Bird watching We have many bird feeders between cabins #3 & #4 .
You will see many songbirds there all year long.
 The two birds of prey that you will see constantly flying overhead are the eagle
& osprey.
The osprey sometimes nests close to the ocean where it fishes for flounder and other small marine fish. Although the osprey is an endangered species, Newfoundland and Labrador is home to a strong population of these birds. It is possible to watch osprey all over our province, including ponds in the heart of St. Johnís.
The bald eagle is a year-round resident of Newfoundland and Labrador
Although it is an occasional predator of gulls, murres, and other prey,
most of its food comes from the ocean.
Puffins can be view off Bonavista & Elliston

Fishing -Catches that can weigh in at 30 pounds. World-record landlocked salmon and Arctic char. Wild brook trout weighing up to eight pounds.
Newfoundland and Labrador has over 60% of North Americaís best Atlantic salmon Rivers, with some having annual runs in excess of 30,000 fish. There are over 200 known wild Atlantic salmon Rivers in Newfoundland and Labrador, the last great fishing wilderness on the North American continent.

Flora - The pitcher plant (sarracenia purpurea) is a unique and hardy plant found on bogs and marshes throughout Newfoundland and Labrador. This little plant, with wine and green-coloured flowers, survives on insects collected in its tubular leaves. It is the official flower of the province.
