Slimes and Scales: Citizen Science (ages 11-16)

April 25, 2018 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Get a hands-on introduction to local species of reptiles and amphibians with the help of the Maajiigin Gumig Greenhouse Technician, Kyle Williams. While on a hike we will learn about the diverse herpetofauna of SW Ontario, some of their threats, and how we can make a difference. We will be using our phones to engage youth with technology for environmental science and conservation.  

Bring boots, bug spray, notepad, snacks, and if possible a cell phone pre-loaded with “Ontario Nature’s Reptile and Amphibian Atlas App” for your own use as citizen science. Ontario Nature’s Reptile and Amphibian Atlas app identifies Ontario’s reptiles and amphibians, lets you submit sightings with ease and stores a record of your submissions.  Download the app for free before the hike. We may also use iNaturalist. Download iNaturalist app beforehand here

New binoculars for free sign-out and spotting scope available for use during the outing thanks to a partnership between Vortex Canada, Nova Chemicals, and our club!

Please RSVP and any cancellations to this event by emailing the names and ages of participants and whether they will be accompanied by a parent or guardian to m.kent@lambtonwildlife.com.
