IMG_8601Echo Pond takes place at the Brother Brennan Environmental Education Centre. The centre consists of 2 main buildings: a cookhouse and dormitory that can sleep up to 72 people. More information about the facility can be found here: http://www.brotherbrennancentre.ca/about/maps-and-directions/

Although just over an hour from St. John’s, the Brother Brennan Centre is in a beautifully pristine setting. The centre sits beside a clear pond, among a network of wetlands. It is home to a variety of wildlife, including loons, snipes, moose, squirrels, hares, ravens and crows. There are also many types of plants, including two carnivorous bog plants. Common sounds are the haunting call of loons, the ‘winnowing’ of snipes (a sound that is made with their tail feathers), and the gentle notes of songbirds. On clear nights, our campfires are lit by the moon and the glow of stars.
