Thank you to our guest speakers and everyone who attended the “Re-Wilding for Our Future” talk at the Stratford Public Library on November 28th. We had a great turnout for three informative and inspiring presentations about how to “re-wild” our properties and the city by planting to encourage pollinators, native species, and tree growth.
The link to the recording is below where you’ll see the slides from the presentations and hear our speakers:
- Lorraine Kuepfer from Bee City Stratford speaking about pollinators and pollinator gardens
- Marianne van den Huevel from the LIEU re-wilding working group of CFUW Stratford sharing ideas for re-wilding urban lawns on institutional and business properties, and
- Craig Merkley from the Upper Thames River Conservation Authority (UTRCA) explaining details of the shoreline restoration along the Avon River and Lake Victoria here in Stratford
This event is part of the Living with Climate Momentum series at the library — thanks to Robyn Godfrey and the Stratford Public Library for this ongoing collaboration!
Also, you can find this “Re-Wilding for Our Future” book list on the Stratford Public Library website.
Watch for the announcement of our next Living with Climate Momentum event in March 2020 which will be a community discussion in collaboration with the library and the University of Waterloo Stratford Campus.
