The Harrison Lewis Centre, located on the Atlantic coast amidst an amazingly varied environment offering numerous protected habitats on federal and provincial park lands. These include wilderness reserves, Canadian Wildlife Service migratory bird sanctuaries, Nature Conservancy of Canada holdings, and private lands.

This is an excellent opportunity for a returning university student to help the not-for-profit Centre deliver its programs, while in return the Centre supports the student with an honours project or to carry out independent research (with professional guidance) relating to the natural environment.

We are located within the Port Joli Important Bird Area, and immediately adjacent to newly designated nature reserves (NS Environment). Environment welcomes assistance of qualified students in carrying out inventories of flora and fauna on these protected areas. An ecologist with the Department writes: "They (students) could also do species at risk surveys and then do plots to characterize the habitat the SAR are using. Even a list of plants and/or animals is helpful."
