The plan is to meet at the Interpretive Centre (885 Hwy. 24 at Forestry Farm Road) at 11:00 a.m., go for a tour and then head back to the Centre for a picnic lunch. Please bring your own lunch, lawn chairs and insect repellant.
Mary Gartshore and Peter Carson will take participants to several restoration sites which represent various habitats and stages of maturity. Planning, execution and results will be discussed and illustrated.
Peter Carson and Mary Gartshore have been studying local moth species for a number of years. They use light traps and sugaring methods to attract the moths, as well as rearing some of the larger species, and will have some on display. They will discuss the natural history of these nighttime fliers.
