Each year we run a seminar series from May through August, with topics running the gamut from natural history, environmental management, and natural history to wildlife art. In the past two years our seminars have been virtual, but this year we are returning to in-person. Typically held in the Conference Room in the R.J. Robertson Biodiversity Centre each Wednesday at 7:00 pm, seminars this year begin May 11. We ask that all who attend bring and wear a mask indoors for the safety of all. All are welcome!
