What does a beaver in Tuktoyaktuk mean for Grey-Bruce?

An interesting news piece on an invasive species conference held in Yellowknife, which included reports and presentations by scientists and long-time residents who know the land well. The clear conclusion is that climate change is accelerating such that habitats are noticeably shifting. If a beaver has been found near the edge of the Arctic coast, what might be coming to our region? Will Virginia Possums, who have already moved in to the area, and raccoons be fighting it out for habitat dominance 🙂

Show Us Your Sign!!

At the AGM last month a lot of members purchased our new metal Member sign for their gateposts, fences, and wherever else (rumour is that one has, with magnets, been attached to a beer fridge). We would like pictures of *your* sign, wherever you have mounted it, for our web site and/or newsletter. Email them to: bgwa@naturemail.ca If you missed out on getting a sign, you will have another chance at the Woodlot Conference in Elmwood next weekend!

EAB on Quirks and Quarks

CBC Radio’s Quirks and Quarks aired a piece on the Emerald Ash Borer. In this audio link you will hear perhaps some of what you already knew but also some updated info which will be of interest to most BGWA members.
