Spring Is Finally Here!

On April 16, 2014

The Duffins Creek Renewal Program kicked off this year's events with a presentation on the Spring Ecology of Duffins Creek.  The event was well attended for our first event with about 14 people coming out.  Thank you to all of the attendees for your interest in the program.  Congratulations to Patrick who won our Spring Ecology of Duffins Creek Bingo game!  His prize was a plush Brook Trout one of the resident species of Duffins Creek that needs our help.

The workshop focused on what will be happening in the Duffins Creek ecosystem in the spring time.  We talked about the importance of the spring flood to the health of the creek, what the fish and aquatic insects are up to and the other animals that rely on the creek. Some of the animals included were the Great Horned Owl, water snakes, Mink, and the Mudpuppy.

A special thank you to Jade Schofield from Sustainable Ajax for supplying the presentation space and the Ontario Trillium Foundation for funding the Duffins Creek Renewal Program.
