Join Y2Y’s Dr. Hilary Young, director of communities and conservation, for an event in the Earth Talks series from the Biosphere Institute of the Bow Valley on Monday, Jan. 15.
Attendees will learn:
What are wildlife corridors, why are they important, and why do I hear so much about them in the Bow Valley?
What characteristics must wildlife corridors have to keep wildlife populations healthy and resilient?
How do we keep our corridors functional in the face of future pressures?
This Earth Talks event is Monday, Jan. 15 at 7 PM MT in the Canmore Public Library Friends Program Room. Admission is free, with donations graciously accepted.
