Be pollinator friendly: Free event in October
Mark your calendars for Oct. 14 to attend a free family event at Ken Reid Conservation Area to celebrate Canada’s 150th birthday and the environment.
The event, organized and hosted by the Kawartha Conservation Foundation, will feature hands-on environmental displays, guided hikes, live animal shows and an environmental fair.
The environmental fair will offer a number of educational and interactive booths including vermicomposting, bee keeping, water pollution information, and how landfills are engineered, with displays by Green Up, Kawartha Lakes Waste Management department, Ontario Turtle Conservation Centre, Bee City, Kawartha Conservation and more.
Susan Blayney, an active member of the City of Kawartha Lakes Environmental Advisory Committee and field naturalist, will share tips on how to create your own pollinator gardens and how to be pollinator-friendly. Kawartha Lakes was recently designated as a Bee City municipality, and has created an online resource for those interested in taking action.
