Event description

Description

This spring, we launched the Preserving Biodiversity Series to celebrate 20 years of conservation! This series of events promotes biodiversity and the important role of land stewardship in its protection. The series started off with two workshops on species at risk and invasive species identification, control and monitoring. The series will continue with a bioblitz on June 10th and 11th!

A bioblitz is an intensive biological inventory wherein participants survey an area and identify as many things as possible! Members of the public are encouraged to attend these events to better understand the diversity of life that occurs in your backyards.

The first bioblitz will take place at our Simmons Nature Reserve in Caledon East. We will have experts conduct an intensive survey in the morning. After this is complete, we will host a guided blitz which will be open to the public. You will get the opportunity to explore the Simmons Nature Reserve. We will bring you to the most exciting areas of the property and be sure to show you any rare observations. This will also be your chance to explore the site and make discoveries of your own!

If you are well versed in a particular species group, we need your help! Register as an expert and help identify flora and fauna on this nature reserve. Experts are required to arrive at 8:00 am to 11:00 am.

Are you interested in joining us on the guided blitz to learn more about the flora and fauna on the nature reserve? Register for the guided blitz which will start at 11:30 am to 1:30 pm. EBC's Annual General Meeting will follow this event so members are encouraged to stick around!
