May Days

May 11, 2018 - May 15, 2018

The Friends of Redtail Society would like to welcome its members and the public to it’s third annual May Days event held on the top of Porter Road, Pictou West, on the public lands bordering FRS land and the MacKay Brook Nature Reserve. We will be setting up camp beginning at noon on Friday, May 11th and finishing at noon on Sunday, May 13th.  As in past years, we will be holding a night sit beginning just before dark on Friday evening at 8 PM. A tree planting demonstration by Tom Miller will be held on Saturday at 10AM. This year we will also partake in a 24 hour fast to bring good energy and intention to the environmental and social struggles we are currently facing in Pictou County. The intent is unity, not division, and we encourage anyone to participate whether it is at the gathering site or in the comfort of their own surroundings. The fast will begin at 6:00 AM on Saturday morning and end at 6:00 AM on Sunday morning. Everyone is welcome to drop by for a visit if you are not planning on camping or fasting. Please bring a folding chair if you are attending the night sit. Full details can be found at www.friendsofredtail.ca and our Facebook page.
