TOURS, TALKS & WORKSHOPS
Tracking Birds and Butterflies Across International Borders with Dr. Ryan Norris - Talk Wednesday, July 27, 2016, 7:30 - 9:15 pm
Yearly, migratory creatures commute between breeding grounds and winter habitats. Dr. Norris will share how we uncovered these migrations, including record-breaking, non-stop oceanic flights by tiny songbirds. With monarch butterflies, Dr. Norris will show why tracking migration is fundamental for understanding effects of environmental change and conservation planning.
After, tour OURSpace (our outdoor classroom and restoration area) followed by a bat walk in High Park! Use a bat monitor and borrow one to discover if there are bats in your neighbourhood. More details
