Duck Workshop at Arboretum on March 31

The colours and shapes of waterfowl are always eye catching.

The Arboretum at the Uni­versity of Guelph is holding a duck workshop, on March 31 from 9am to 4pm to help parti­cipants identify 24 duck spe­cies found in Ontario.

Through a variety of hands-on activities they will learn about plumage, flight identi­fication, breeding displays, and migration.  Ideas on enhancing habitat for nesting ducks will also be discussed. The Arbore­tum’s naturalist, Chris Earley, will lead the workshop.

The fee is $75 and the registration deadline is March 17.  For more information or to register call The Arboretum at 824-4120 extension 52358.
