On Sunday afternoon, 15th May 2011, a dozen volunteers participated in an afternoon of stewardship. The event was part of a monthly volunteer stewardship program on Micou’s Island in Glen Haven. The Province owns the Island and the St. Margaret’s Bay Stewardship Association coordinates the care of it. The volunteers' activities included contemplation, intervention and documentation of care for nature. Participants were asked to contemplate, not answer, the meaning of caring for nature. They picked up eight bags of garbage along the shore. The last clean up was in September 2010. The garbage was also categorized and counted to provide data for an international campaign to reduce marine debris. Afterwards everyone stayed for tea and cookies in the historical fishing house on the island. They enjoyed themselves so much that they were unconcerned by the rising tide and at least one got their feet wet on the way back! The island is accessible by foot at low tide (and only then) across a sandbar.
