Speaker Series – The Good, the Bad and the Bugly

Welcome to The Good, the Bad, and the Bugly: The Aquatic Invertebrate Fauna of Fish Creek. Join us for an exciting event where we will discuss our findings from sites along Fish Creek collected in the fall of 2023, using the standardized national CABIN protocol. We will present some of the weird and wonderful invertebrates we found and compare these findings to sites in the bigger Bow basin. We will finish with our thoughts on water quality issues we think are worthy of further investigation in Fish Creek.

Located at the Fish Creek Environmental Learning Centre 13931 Woodpath Road SW; this event is perfect for nature enthusiasts of all ages.
