   _Friends of McNabs Island Society hosts Fall Foliage Tours_

   _September 19, 2011, Halifax, NS_: The Friends of McNabs Island Society will
   host their annual Fall Foliage Tours of McNabs and Lawlor Islands Provincial
   Park on Sunday, October 16. This year’s history tour will feature Fort McNab
   National Historic Site, which has reopened following an extensive
   restoration project. Guided nature tours, as well as a Thomas Raddall
   Hangman’s Beach literary tour, are also planned

   The Fall Foliage Tours is a time for families and friends to explore McNabs
   Island in all its natural autumn beauty. As well as Fort McNab, visitors can
   explore the many other historic sites such as Fort Ives, Fort Hugonin, the
   Victorian Gardens of the Hugonin-Perrin Estate, and the grounds of the Lynch
   and Conrad homes.

   Cathy McCarthy, President of the Friends of McNabs Island, says, "The Fall
   Foliage Tours is a great time for everyone to discover McNabs. Visitors will
   learn about the island's colourful history, wildlife and plants from
   experienced guides, who share their enthusiasm for McNabs and Lawlor Island
   Provincial Park. This fall, we are especially pleased to show-off the
   restoration work at Fort McNab National Historic Site".
