2Rivers Festival: Nature in the City - Feathers and Beaks !

We are excited to announce that on Sunday May 3rd, 2020 from 1-2pm we will be giving a free online presentation of our trek for the 2Rivers Festival: Nature in the City - Feathers & Beaks ! 

This free event is being hosted by Nature Guelph and the 2River Festival.  Nature Guelph is an amazing club in the Guelph Ontario region dedicated to connected people with nature.  They are particularly keen on getting youth involved in the outdoors and interested in nature through their EcoLeaders program

Our presentation is part of the 2River Festival which, since 2012, has offered free events throughout the Guelph region dedicated to celebrating and protecting the rivers and landscapes of the area.

Given the current situation in person gatherings are obviously restricted, and so this event has been restructured to an online format!  This means that there are more possibilities for people from around Canada and the world to listen in and participate – whether you are a budding naturalist, a parent hoping to introduce your family to birding or citizen science, or a hiker wondering about trekking Canada’s Great Trail !  This talk is for you! 

In our presentation we will be introducing people to the world of birding – from your own backyard to the Boreal. We will also share stories of The Great Trail, talk about Important Bird Areas, and share six steps people can take to help birds. We will also discuss the use of cell phone apps like iNaturalist and Seek that people can use to connect with nature and become involved in conservation through Citizen Science. 

This is a family friendly event with time for a Q&A session.
