Winter in Nature Workshop

Winter in Nature Workshop

Date: Feb 26-27, 2011

Presented by Queen’s University Biological Station

Leader: Mark Andrew Conboy (Queen’s University Biological Station)

Winter is a fascinating time to get out and explore nature. This is a general natural history workshop that will touch on a multitude of topics including animal tracking, winter birds, observing flying squirrels and a special night visit to Kemptville Creek where over 100 Mudpuppies (large aquatic salamanders) may be seen in one visit. The breadth of exciting activities will ensure that participants will hardly notice the winter cold. The workshop will be spread over two days.

Please visit our website for all the details: http://www.queensu.ca/qubs/events/workshops/natureinwinter.html or email us: . There are still a few spaces left but register soon if you want to ensure your spot.
