Birding for Beginners Series 2017

If you're interested in learning to bird but don't know where to start or you've been out birding but lack confidence to identify birds on your own, our Birding for Beginners series is for you! This series takes place every Wednesday for five weeks between May 3rd and May 31st. You can attend as many weeks as you choose, and registration is not required. An experienced birder will meet you at a new park in Winnipeg each week and will help new birders look for and learn how to identify native and migratory birds in Manitoba. 

Planted: Stories from Manitoba's Natural World

In her book Planted: Stories from Manitoba's Natural World NM member Kaitlin Vitt has collected the stories of eight local nature-lovers, both to preserve them and remind us that feeling connected with nature is fundamental to protecting it.

How Beef Helps Birds

Eating a burger might not seem like an act of conservation, but beef production, or more specifically cattle grazing, now has a place of significance in one of the world’s most endangered ecosystems. North America’s temperate grasslands are disappearing faster than the rainforest, and cattle farming could help stop this decline.

2017 New Year's Resolutions

It's the time of year when many people are thinking about New Year's resolutions. Often our goals at this time of year focus on things we would like to change about ourselves and our lives - lose a few pounds, pay off that credit card, or maybe actually getting to those books you've been meaning to read.

The Manitoba Trails Project (MTP) is a brand new non-profit organization and they are looking for the help of outdoor enthusiasts to submit photos and details about the trails they use.
