Creepy-Crawlies of Manitoba

Instructor: 

James Whitelaw, Nature Manitoba Birder

Tuesday, March 5, 2019

Start Time: 

7:30 pm

Fee: 

$5 for Nature Manitoba members, $10 for non-members (students: $3 for members, $5 for non-members).

Most nature lovers are familiar with birds and other vertebrates, but aside from a few groups such as butterflies, know little about the vastly more numerous and diverse invertebrates (animals without backbones) that live in Manitoba. This workshop aims to help you put a name to invertebrates that we encounter in the countryside, in our yards and that share our homes.

Manitoba is rich in wetlands, with vast prairie marshes, numerous prairie potholes, several large river deltas and the bogs and fens of the boreal and tundra. These wetlands are home to a vast array of birds, including, of course, numerous waterfowl, loons, grebes, pelicans, long-legged waders, cranes, rails, shorebirds, gulls and terns and passerines from several families that have evolved in these habitats. This presentation will overview the rich avian biodiversity of Manitoba's wetlands and discuss their identification and distribution, as well as touching on ecological and conservation significance.

The trip will also feature a few cultural stops (including the Taj Mahal!). A portion of the proceeds from this tour will go directly toward supporting our work in Manitoba - including our work in Manitoba's Important Bird & Biodiversity Areas!
