April 8 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Join Hamilton Naturalists Club for a free talk with Alison Forde, Senior Ecologist with SNC-Lavalin. Despite having the greatest diversity of reptiles in Canada, it can be a challenge finding them in Ontario. Our elusive and sometimes stigmatized snakes and turtles face many challenges themselves. What’s being done to help them? Alison will share her knowledge and experiences from the field with a little help from her reptile education ambassador, Noodle. Over the past decade, Alison has worked with and studied Ontario’s reptiles on a personal and professional level, most recently surveying for Massasauga Rattlesnakes in the Georgian Bay area. She loves to bust myths and misconceptions about snakes and has helped countless individuals overcome their fears through education. Free. All welcome. Royal Botanical Gardens Headquarters 680 Plains Road Burlington Meet & greet at 7 pm. Contact Lou email@example.com for more information. Bring your mug for coffee/tea or cider.
