Raptors and a host of other birds migrate north along the Red River and Pembina River valleys in early spring. Come join the birders who monitor this migration. They will be present from mid-morning at either site on most days from mid-March to mid-April, especially when it is sunny with a south wind. The St. Adolphe site is on the east side of the bridge on PR. 210. The Windygates site is on PR. 201 at the Pembina River Valley. Watches are not scheduled, so there is no need to register. Come and go as you please.

As scientific equipment has become more specialized in the past decades, it is now possible to screen our environment for hundreds of pesticides and other chemicals, as well as for thousands of bacteria and  other micro-organisms. It is certain that most humans are frequently exposed to chemical mixtures and micro-organisms in our environment. Surface water and ground water are where our drinking water comes from, and when source water is contaminated, it can make treating drinking water more complex.. Authorities, such as the Government of Canada and the European Union, may have different opinions about what are safe levels of contaminant exposure, but beyond that, access to clean running drinking water is a human right.. Within the above context, this presentation highlights some of the water research conducted by Dr Farenhorst and her collaborators.
