Each summer MTRI hosts a weekly seminar series on Thursdays in July and August. These half hour long talks start at 4pm and cover a wide variety of topics related to natural history. The speakers include field experts, MTRI staff, professors, and community members! Come for the popcorn, stay for the seminar! For more information contact us at 902-682-2371.
Once again this summer MTRI is part of an combined effort of numerous organizations to identify and map habitat for Atlantic Coastal Plains Flora (ACPF) species. More than half of these plant species are threatened or endangered in their current known habitat. Come out and learn to identify these species and their habitat! You get to enjoy a day either on the water or walking the shorelines of southwestern Nova Scotia's beautiful lakes! If your are interested contact MTRI at 682-2371 or firstname.lastname@example.org
