Hi, this is North Star PS in NSW Australia, thanks for posting your pictures. We have some questions for you:
1) How cold does the temp get in winter?
The average temperature in New Brunswick during the winter months is -7.5 degrees Celsius.
2) In your third picture, the poles in the water look like an oyster farm, are they?
Yes that is an Oyster farm off the coast of Grand Manan, which is a small island off the coast of New Brunswick. The Oysters in which they farm are called Atlantic Oysters because they are farmed in the Atlantic Ocean.
3) How did the rocks in the second picture get shaped like that?
The Hopewell Rocks were first formed millions of years ago as a massive mountain. Through the Millennia, the earth’s crust twisted and tilted, the rock layers broke into blocks which created vertical fissures. Rain and ice wilted away at these fissures. This separated the cliffs into chunks of rocks. The last retreated about 13,000 years ago.
Hi, this is Mill Creek School in Illinois. We would like to know if the conditions in the winter cause dangerous conditions, and if so, how?
Yes winter conditions are more dangerous than summer conditions. The roads are icy which makes it hard to drive. During January, February and March we have an average of 20 cm of snow on the ground.

Hi, this is St Monica's School in Victoria , Australia. Thankyou for sharing these photos.
1) In the second last picture there are many trees in the water. Are they dead? What type of trees are they? If they are dead is there a reason why they haven't been removed?
This is a picture of a wetland habitat in New Brunswick. Those trees may be dead but wetlands are full of mature trees. Wetlands are a protected area, which means even if they were dead they would be left to let nature take its course!
2) In the picture above, why are the bottom of the rocks a different colour to the tops? What type of trees are growing on the top of the rocks?
The bottoms of the rocks are a different colour because there is seaweed built up on the rock bases. New Brunswick has many different types of trees. There are a variety of trees growing on Hopewell rocks, Here are a few of them.

Thanks for your excellent questions everyone. We llok forward to our next unti on animals!
