SPES uses the Zeffy platform to process payments, so your entire purchase goes to us. If you’d like to help Zeffy keep running its services, you can choose to tip them. If you don’t want to, choose “Other” in the drop-down menu and then enter $0.
When we go outside there are countless relationships, systems, reactions, and adaptions happening in the nature surrounding us. How do you personally understand and appreciate nature? Join SPES volunteer, author, naturalist and professor of natural history, Roy Jantzen on a walk about interconnections between the plants, fungi, birds, mammals, and insects that we may encounter on our journey. An example may be a Pileated Woodpecker that in feeding creates nest sites for birds, while transplanting fungal spores from tree to tree. This 2.5 hour outing is planned as a collaborative discussion and identification walk so please consider sharing a favourite local natural world connection that surprises or intrigues you.
