General Meeting and AGM: Biodiversity in the Barrenlands
April 16 @ 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM
KFN General Meetings are held the third Thursday of the month at Ongwanada Resource Centre. Social begins at 7pm with meeting beginning at 7:30pm.
Past meeting minutes are available here.
April meeting is our Annual General Meeting(AGM). We will have a short report about our activities in the past year, the budget will be presented, and the 2020/2021 Executive will be elected.
After the work is done we will have a slightly shorter presentation.
A long-time member of the Kingston Field Naturalists, Carolyn Bonta recently joined the Executive as Field Trips Coordinator. Carolyn’s talk will take us on a tour of the tundra biome of the north-central Canadian Arctic where she has spent the past two summers conducting fieldwork. The Arctic climate has been warming rapidly in recent decades, and Carolyn’s study area is within the range of the precipitously-declining Bathurst caribou herd. This presentation will highlight how changes in climate and large herbivore populations can drastically alter vegetation communities and patterns on the tundra landscape.
