Event Graphic for October 5 Bioblitz and Celebration of SUN

Come celebrate the success of SUN (Sustainable Urban Neighbourhoods) at a BioBlitz of Kawartha Heights Park! We will be working with local community experts to observe and identify the many species living in Kawartha Heights Park. Experts will be leading groups on walks around the park, and supporting YOU in the study of flora and fauna.

This is an all-ages event. We will have two rounds of walks, with a break for lunch and child-friendly entertainment around noon. Please bring your own picnic lunch to enjoy.
