Citizen Scientists required to help take stock of the Shirley and George Pond Nature Reserve

LPBLT's BioBlitz will bring together local naturalists and experts with interested individuals to share their knowledge of a variety of topics including plant identification, pollinator and butterfly identification, and bats and moths. It will be happening at the Shirley and George Pond Nature Reserve on Saturday August 12th from 8:30 a.m. until 11:00 p.m. with different sessions held throughout the day.

This event is an important way for LPBLT to collect valuable information about the nature reserve and expand our database of species on the property. It will provide a "snap-shot" of the species and diversity of the property, and give a baseline of data that can be used for future management decisions or evaluating the health of an ecosystem over time.

Participants will have the opportunity to see how biological inventories are done and gain skills that will help them do their own.

Anyone interested in participating in LPBLT's BioBlitz can find more information about the event or register for any of the sessions at

In addition, LPBLT is in search of volunteers to help run the event. Volunteers are needed for event set up and take down, running the registration table, and assisting with parking and directions. If you are interested in volunteering with LPBLT and can lend a few hours, please contact Lyndsay Shular, Stewardship Coordinator at 519-420-9913 or

Funding for LPBLT's BioBlitz was provided by TD Friends of the Environment Foundation.
