Natural History Talks at Carberry Library

Natural History Talks at Carberry Library

  Tuesday September 10, 2019

Carberry North Cypress Library will be hosting a series of talks on the subject of natural history. The first of these events will take place on Saturday, September 14th at 2:00 pm when Manitoba author Sheldon McLeod will give a presentation on his book Sands of the Assiniboine Delta. The book begins by detailing the creation of the Assiniboine Delta during the period of glacial melting. It then goes on to discuss the animals and plant life found in our region, as well as current historical and recreational sites. The book is written with incredible detail and information, and is a must read for anyone interested in the natural wonders the Assiniboine Delta holds. Sheldon will be doing a presentation on the book and its research, which will surely provide a wealth of information.
Our second presentation is Bat Talk, taking place Saturday, October 5th at 2:00 pm with local bat expert Lorelei Mitchell. Bats are some of our most misunderstood creatures, and Lorelei has spent years researching these furry fliers. Lorelei is a former veterinarian who has played a significant role in many conservation projects over the years. Recently she has completed work on the Manitoba Breeding Bird Atlas, and has been a long time caretaker of the Bluebird trail in the Glenboro area. Lorelei’s expertise on bats, and just about every other animal that calls this area home, will make for a very interesting talk for anyone wanting to learn more about these animals.
Both of these events are free to attend and no registration is required. If you have any more questions on these talks, please contact Carson at 204-834-3043 or carson@wmrl.ca
