There is a wide range of subjects that can be covered in nature, and an upcoming event. The event, which takes place at the Saltcoats Community Hall, starts at 1:00 p.m.
What’s on the agenda?
Everything about ticks.
They are small, they are nasty, they cause some people to recoil in horror and spouses in tea tree oil in order to prevent them from getting more. But they are also worth understanding.
"Ticks are my life." Said Dr. L. Robbin Lindsay, presenter at the event.
Lindsay is a research scientist at the National Microbiology Laboratory in Brandon. He's going to be covering the different ticks that are present in Saskatchewan, from the deer tick disease since 2009 – Rocky Mountain wood tick and winter tick.
"Still," Lindsay added, "it is wise to know how to dress for tick season and how to remove a tick if it becomes embedded." It’s all about prevention and control. "
Everything about The Great Trail.
"My hope is that people get out and experience what the Great Trail has to offer," said Kristen Gabora, Trail Development Manager for Central Canada for the Trans Canada Trail (TCT).
At the event Gabora will tell the story of the trail, which connects Canada through 24,000 kms of pathways, the longest recreational trail in the world. She will also be on the boardwalk at the Ecological Preserve, one of the most recent projects for the trail.
Everything about Saskatchewan birds.
Joan Feather will facilitate Q and A about Birds of Saskatchewan, a book describing 437 bird species that can be found in the province.
Created with a bequest to Nature Saskatchewan from Manley, submitting their best photographs and research.
