Family Series - Exploring Cootes Paradise

« Back



Looking for something fun, educational and FREE to do on a Sunday morning?  Come to Alumni House on campus and hear from some of the researchers who study the wildlife in the sky and in the water around Cootes Paradise.

Over the past month at Alumni House we've seen a turtle laying eggs on the lawn and a bat flying around the house.   To help us understand the importance of these creatures to the ecosystem Dr. Paul Faure, known as the batman on campus, will discuss his research on bats and graduate student Morgan Piczak will discuss her work on the turtle population in the area.

Bring your love of small creatures as Paul Faure is known to travel with friends and pack your walking shoes as we'll do some exploring around Cootes.

After our time exploring we'll convene back at Alumni House for some ice cream before heading home.
