Would you believe that Linda Sewell has already got a full roster of speakers lined up for 2022. She has indeed, as well as some “extra” events such as a special evening presentation on the Ontario Breeding Bird Atlas. You can join the event, which will take place at 7 p.m. on Monday, February 28, via the same Zoom connection used at our monthly club meetings.
Aaron Hywarren and Christian Renault, the Regional Coordinators for the two local regions covered by the Atlas – Ottawa and Renfrew – will provide an overview of the Atlas, summarize local efforts thus far and explain how individuals can contribute to one of Ontario’s largest citizen science efforts.
Aaron has been birding in one way or another for as long as he can remember, beginning with learning prairie bird song growing-up in Southern Manitoba. Christian was fascinated by animals since he was 5-6 years old, but birds became his passion during his teenage years.
We’re all still hoping for a return to in-person meetings at the Arnprior Curling Club in the fall but in the interim, let’s make the most of these special opportunities via Zoom!
