The MICA Mission comes to Life!

MICA Island Picnic: On Saturday, June 18, Education Committee Chair Syd Dumaresq and wife Sandy organized a MICA picnic on Backmans Island for Grade 5 Bayview School. It was a perfect day for the event and the group explored the western side of the island. Although the water was cool most were in up to their knees and were all very impressed at the millions of 'silverbacks' that were swimming around the shore.

Accompanying and supporting Syd and Sandy were Sean Feener of BACAF and Maria Kirby Breen of the Friends of Nature. Syd gave the group a short explanation of MICA and reminded all that 'they' own the island and it is a shared responsibility to ensure the MICA islands remain as they are. The Mahone Bay Inshore Rescue with Isaac Longard and fellow crew members stopped in to explain their role to the group, joined the BBQ and escorted the boats back to Lunenburg Yacht Club. All in all another very good day for MICA. Thanks to Syd and Sandy.
