Co-hosted by the Ingersoll District Nature Club and the Ingersoll Public Library

A four-part series of illustrated talks on nature and the environment. Join us in the Ingersoll Library meeting room.

JOHN ENRIGHT – “Seeding the Butternut’s Future – Will Climate Change impact trees in Oxford County?”

Join us to hear John, a Certified Forester with the Upper Thames River Conservation Authority and Butternut Specialist. He and other partners are working with FGCA in managing a Butternut Seed Orchard in Oxford County just south of Innerkip. Home to approximately 174 grafted butternut from across the province, shown to have some tolerance to butternut canker, the team works on reproduction in order to save tree genetics of this species-at-risk. This, along with his work with “assisted tree migration” to Oxford County, will shed light on work being done to save species and prepare for a hotter, drier climate in the future.
