With winter fast approaching we are all making plans for the cold and snowy time of year. Our feathered friends are also making plans. Some have already migrated south to warmer climates for the winter but some, like us, prepare to stay. What birds tough it out in the winter? How do they stay warm, hide from predators, find food, water and shelter? These are excellent questions to ask our presenter for this event, Bernard Forsythe. Bernard is an active Naturalist studying the nesting habits of birds; he is also an owl expert and has just received the ‘Canadian Wildlife Federation’s Stan Hodgkiss Outdoorsperson of the Year Award. See the Advertiser article about this exciting award…  Local conservationist wins national award.

Join us in the basement classroom of the KCIC @ Acadia University for this event. Don’t forget to wear proper outdoor clothing as we will be heading out to the trails after the presentation. Also bring something to drink and a snack just in case.
