We are pleased to announce our upcoming presentation of MVFN Nature Talks. On Thursday, FEBRUARY 18, 2021 we will continue with our theme of “Eye Wonder: The Magic and Mystery of Our Natural World”. The next speaker in our series is Owen Clarkin. He will present, via Zoom, “A Visual Tour of Some Notable Native Trees of Eastern Ontario”.
Owen Clarkin grew up near Russell, Ontario, and has been studying the trees of Eastern Ontario as a dedicated amateur since the age of 4. Since finishing a terminal degree in the natural sciences in 2012, he is more seriously exploring topics in tree identification and ecology from an Eastern Ontario perspective, together with a core group of colleagues. In addition to leading public nature hikes, Owen regularly contributes to local and worldwide plant identification
forums on social media.
