Invasive Plant Walking Tour

Thursday August 17th 6:00-7:30 PM

In the trails beside Boulevard Lake - Meet in the parking lot at the end of Clarke St. off of Algoma St. 

Thunder Bay is threatened by a wide variety of invasive plants. These all have negative impacts on our local biodiversity. Join EcoSuperior and the Ontario Federation of Anglers and Hunters on an Invasive Species Walking Tour to learn about the impacts these plants have, how to identify them, and what you can do to prevent them from spreading! The tour will be approximately one hour at an easy to moderate pace. Participants should bring sturdy walking shoes, a reusable water bottle, and comfortable clothing!
