I'd like to be under the sea,
In an octopus's garden in the shade.
He'd let us in, knows where we've been,
In his octopus's garden in the shade.

Well we might not find any octopus, but you’ll be surprised at what lives in the waters of the Bras d’Or Lakes.

Once again UINR is participating in Bras d’Or Watch in Eskasoni on Saturday July 22. We’ll be at Morris Beach from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

There’s no cost, all ages are welcome, and all you need to bring is your curiousity!
