Alvars: A globally significant habitat… right next door.

February 28 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

“Alvars: A globally significant habitat… right next door.” With David Hawke

Most naturalists are familiar with a wide variety of habitat types, such as a hardwood forest, cedar swamp, or grassland… but an alvar??

This presentation takes a close look at the ecology of limestone plains (alvars) found scattered around central Ontario. It is a harsh environment, subject to flooding and drought each year; therefore the plants and wildlife that live here are a hardy and often unique group.

David Hawke has been visiting this habitat since the 1970s. His stories and photographs will reveal the lure and excitement of exploring alvars.
