Tall grass prairie and pastures, crop lands and treed areas, wild flowers and rivers, and the rural communities grew from this land. Métis and First Nations people helped new immigrants learn to survive and thrive in this area of the province where Manitoba was born.

Birds VS Windows

Birds VS Windows

Instructor: 

Dr. Emily McKinnon, Biologist and Science Educator

Location: 

Kelvin High School, Room 31

Date: 

Tuesday, January 29, 2019

Start Time: 

7:30 pm

Fee: 

$5 for Nature Manitoba members, $10 for non-members (students: $3 for members, $5 for non-members).

Why do birds strike windows? What can you do to prevent this?  Many migratory songbirds fly thousands of kilometres from tropical over-wintering sites, only to meet an untimely end after hitting a picture window.  This has a huge impact on songbird populations already threatened by habitat loss, climate change and non-native predators like house cats. Join Dr. Emily McKinnon to learn more about this important issue. Get practical tips to help prevent collisions and practise some easy DIY solutions on some tester windows.
