Ausable Bayfield Conservation shares importance of nature in Canadian life

Young people in this area are learning about Canada’s water, plants, and animals through a one-hour program at local libraries.

Ausable Bayfield Conservation hosted the Our Nature, Our Canada program at Clinton and Zurich libraries on July 18, 2017. Conservation educators continue the program at the Seaforth library on Tuesday, August 8, at 2 p.m.; at the libraries in Bayfield and Goderich on Thursday, August 10 (Goderich at 11:30 a.m. and Bayfield at 2 p.m.); and at the Hensall Library on Tuesday, August 15 at 2 p.m. The Our Nature, Our Canada program is for young people ages 5 to 12 and registration is required.

This new nature education program encourages children and youth to celebrate Canada during the 150th anniversary year of Canadian Confederation. Staff bring special guest Morris the Beaver (a taxidermied beaver) and other iconic symbols of Canada’s nature. “Those who attend find out about the magnificent and abundant natural resources found in Canada including water, plants and animals,” said Iszczuk.

Those taking part get to make a Maple Leaf window decal which helps to prevent birds from striking windows.  

Community donations to the Ausable Bayfield Conservation Foundation have supported several of these library visits as well as other nature education programs.
