Heartland Forest to mark National Wildlife Week

Niagara This Week - Niagara Falls

NIAGARA FALLS — Heartland Forest will be hosting an event Saturday, April 11 to mark the Canadian Wildlife Federation’s National Wildlife Week.

 The event, which takes place from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., is meant to encourage people to get outside and participate in some capacity.

Additionally, Heartland is offering the following on on a drop-in basis.

• Walk along  Heartland Forest's accessible forest trails and connect with nature. Posted along the trail will be signage to learn about wild migrations.

• Get your friends, family and community together to clean up a migratory habitat near you. Heartland will organize an on-site community clean up challenge.

• Find a hidden treasure or hide one of your own as part of CWF’s Geocache initiative. Local geocachers will add new geocaches to Heartland's property.

• Help migratory birds by providing nesting structures for songbirds, raptors and waterfowl. Heartland will organize a crew to clean out our existing nesting boxes and educate on the importance of this.

• Introduce the amphibian Marsh Monitoring Program to visitors as an option to participate in throughout the monitoring season. Explain the importance of citizen science and the contribution to scientific data.

• Test your knowledge of our migrating species by taking our interactive on-line quizzes

Heartland Forest will promote the CWF website and online quizzes to the visiting public on April 10.
