Kyle Breault, biologist and former program coordinator for Tallgrass Ontario, presents Restoring Grassland Biodiversity: A Talk about the Birds and the Bees on Wolfe Island. The Frontenac Stewardship Foundation hosts the presentation on March 26 at 7 pm on Wolfe Island, as the inaugural event in the Frontenac Seminar and Workshop Series, 2015-2016.
Kyle will present an illustrated lecture on his tallgrass planting projects on Wolfe Island and across southern Ontario. The focus will be on the role of native prairie grasses and wildflowers in conserving grassland birds. Also in the lineup are native grasses as a replacement for large lawns and for use on healthy shorelines.
Native grasslands are rare and threatened, and so too are many of the wildlife species that depend on them for survival. Bobolinks, Eastern Meadowlarks and other grassland species will come alive in Kyle’s slide show.
Restoring Grassland Biodiversity takes place on Thursday, March 26 at 7 pm at Wolfe Island United Church, 52 Victoria Street in Marysville, Wolfe Island. All are welcome; free admission.
