Monday: Ecologist to speak about plants of Lake Erie

Niagara College is inviting everyone to attend a free Conservation Biology presentation on Monday, March 12, when ecologist Albert Garofolo, of the Bert Miller Nature Club will speak about The Plants of the Lake Erie Coast.

The Great Lakes coast supports some of the rarest and most threatened ecosystems in Canada. Lake Erie, the southern-most Great Lake, is a hotspot for species diversity and supports a number of species at risk including: Hoptree, Hooded Warbler, and Fowler’s Toad. Join Garofolo  as he gives us a tour focused on the flora and fauna of this unique coastal area.

Garofolo has worked with various Conservation Authorities and the Ministry of Natural Resources as a wetland evaluator and natural heritage biologist. Currently, he is working on the Bert Miller Club’s Lake Erie Coast Project.

The presentation will take place at Monday, March 12 from 1.30 to 2.20 p.m. at the Niagara-on-the-Lake campus, Room West 308.  It is open to everyone and is free of charge.
