EcoPark System partner agency staff and experts on road ecology and local biodiversity will be on site at the Copper Kettle Café from 7 to 9 p.m. on Monday, June 17 to share insights on how a backyard or balcony can help local wildlife thrive between Cootes Paradise Marsh and the Niagara Escarpment.

According organizers, those who attend will have a chance to connect with local, like-minded neighbours over delicious baked goods, tea, and coffee while hearing from experts about how they can help nature in their own back yard.They will also learn about ecological corridors and what they mean for landowners and volunteers, and find out about stewardship opportunities and ways to get involved and make a difference.

Complimentary hot drinks and treats will be available.
