The hike to Morne Pavillon Nature Reserve was held on Saturday, October 17, 2015. The area is a designated 18-acre site with a rich military history background and a nature reserve for wildlife and endangered plants. Twenty-nine (29) members assembled at the bus stop opposite the Gros Islet Police Station to begin the exciting journey. Before the walk commenced a moment of silence was observed for two members who recently passed away; Maria Grech and Geoffrey Jennings Clark.
On arrival to the site a brief history of the area was given by SLNT Programme Assistant – Membership, Melissa Mc. Lauren with the assistance of Mr. Bishnu Tulsie, the Director. Afterwards the participants proceeded to tour the site and was given a short botanical lecture by fellow member, Mr. Roger Graveson at the summit. To top off the experience, a most delectable Creole breakfast was served to participants at the end of the hike. Do enjoy these photos and we hope you will join us on our next expedition!
