The Nature of PEI

by Gary Schneider

When I’m teaching the UPEI course on ecological forestry, I begin the section on Biological Diversity with a lovely picture of a lion. I use the image to get the students thinking about what diversity actually means. At the most ridiculous end of the spectrum is the idea of a zoo. Having more species in one place has little to do with a healthy, diverse

The St. Lawrence

The St. Lawrence
The Cove Journal

by JoDee Samuelson

We lean against the rails as the Island slips by. Souris, Little Harbour, Basin Head, South Lake, East Point Lighthouse… until the Hermanville wind turbines sink below the horizon and we are alone with our ferry and the open sea.

We are en route to Montréal, by water. First north to the Magdalen Islands/les Îles de la Madeleine; change ships and head west to the

Island fall colours
The Nature of PEI

by Gary Schneider

One of the highlights of autumn in the Maritimes is the wondrous colours of many of our native trees and shrubs. 

We often think of New England as the place to be for fall colours. Or Cape Breton, where autumnal beauty and Celtic music have been combined into a very exciting Celtic Colours tourist event that draws musicians and visitors from near and far.

Heatwave

Heatwave
The Cove Journal

by JoDee Samuelson

It’s been a long dry summer. Leaves are crispy and brown around the edges, slugs have gone into hiding, and mice are moving into basements to sip droplets of condensation from water pipes. 

Summer cottages at the Cove feel more like saunas than places of retreat. Then lately we’ve had nasty thunderstorms that remind us of the power of riotous unbridled

by Jan Cox

Nancy Beth Guptill, owner of Sweet Spot Academy, digital and business consulting, conducted a research project recently for the East Prince Women’s Information Centre.
