It's time we had a little talk about the Birds and the Bees...
On Wednesday, November 27, join us to hear two noted biologists talk about
the studies they have done demonstrating the value of biodiversity in Birds Hill
Provincial Park. 7 pm, Red River Community Centre, 293 Murray Ave, Winnipeg. See
the attached poster for details and please print & post or forward to your contacts.
Christian Artuso, Manitoba Program Manager for
Bird Studies Canada: Christian will describe where and when to find the birds of BHPP, the
ecological value of monitoring bird populations and the importance of public participation.
Diana Robson, curator of botany at the Manitoba Museum:
Birds Hill Park is home to one of Canada's largest populations of Western Silvery Aster, a rare and
endangered species. Diana will talk about what she has learned studying this plant's pollinators to
understand how other plants may affect its survival.
This event was developed to help excite you about engaging
youth in environmental stewardship. FoBHP is offering to bring a youth plant identification workshop
to your classroom or youth group (limited number of sessions available). Funded in part by the Prairie
Conservation and Endangered Species Conference and TD's Friends of the Environment Foundation.
