LANDMARK Speaker Series goes virtual! Join us on a Saturday morning each month for interactive online presentations on different aspects of Georgian Bay, conservation, and science.


July 18th – 10 am – Dan Kraus: Conservation and Climate Change

Dan Kraus is Senior Conservation Biologist at the Nature Conservancy of Canada. He will discuss the relationship between climate change and the Earth’s ecosystems, and how protecting nature can help us address the world’s biggest threat and protect our own lives.

August 8th – 10 am – Dr. Ryan Norris: Living on the Edge: The ecology and behaviour of Canada Jays in Algonquin Park

Although Canada Jays are common residents of our North American boreal forests, their natural history and ecology remains somewhat of a mystery, even to those that see them regularly. Using a combination of long-term data and recent experiments, Ryan will discuss the year-round ecology of this fascinating and highly intelligent bird, including what factors influence their survival and reproductive success. He will also address why we have observed over a 50% decline of Canada Jays at the southern edge of their range and how this may be related to long-term changes in climate.
