Learn about Bug Hunting Birds at CVC Workshop
Tuesday, May 21, 2019 by Credit Valley Conservation
Credit Valley Conservation (CVC) is hosting a workshop for bird lovers and the bird curious. Bug Hunting Birds – The Acrobats of our Skies, will be held on Saturday, June 1 from 9 – 11:30 a.m. at Terra Cotta Conservation Area in the Watershed Learning Centre.
Discover the vital connection between birds and wetland bugs. Learn about the hidden lives of these fast and agile flyers, why their numbers are declining and ways to protect them on your own property.
“These amazing birds spend most of their lives in the air hunting for food,” said Lisa Brusse, Manager of Landowner Outreach at CVC. “The workshop is a great opportunity to go birdwatching with expert guides and learn more about creating habitat for these birds, a number of which are species at risk.”
The workshop is split into two parts – an indoor and an outdoor component. Participants are encouraged to dress for the weather and wear sturdy shoes. Our expert birders will show you how to spot these aerial acrobats as we walk through Terra Cotta Conservation Area. You’ll also have the chance to dip nets into the ponds to search for the bugs these birds depend on.
Space is limited. Registration is required. The event is $10 per person. Visit cvc.ca/events or call 905-670-1615 ext. 221 to reserve your spot.
