Next Passport to Nature Event 

Passport to Nature: Forest Health

October 24, 2021 from 1-3pm at Sitler Woods

Is the forest healthy in TTLT’s new nature reserve? Join Donald Craig, a professional forester with over 40 years of experience in southern Ontario woodlands, for a walk in the woods. He will explain how diseases, insects, invasive plants and other factors affect the wide variety of native trees and shrubs in this special site.

This guided field trip is subject to COVID-19 regulations at the time. Passing a COVID-19 screening questionnaire and proof of full vaccination against COVID-19 will be mandatory to attend the event. If necessary, this event will be held as a webinar.

Passport to Nature: Nature Photography Webinar

November 18, 2021 at 7pm via Zoom

Photography is a great way to explore nature. Any camera can snap a photo but, with skill and creativity, you can achieve much more – an image that conveys mood and the essence of a scene.

Antony Chodas is a professional photographer and president of Camera Canada. He can help you get better images and more from your camera. He has travelled internationally and explored places closer to home to capture exceptional photos of nature and the world around us. Antony’s presentation will allow him to display his brilliant images and give advice on the techniques used to achieve them. While good luck has a role to play, planning, preparation and technique can move your photos from good to great.

There will be opportunities for questions and comments.
