Description: A presentation around the pond with Jennifer Lamoureux, Aquatic and Fish Habitat Biologist with the Rideau Valley Conservation Authority (RVCA). The talk will provide information and highlights of how the Brewer Park Pond Restoration came to be. Why was the pond reconstructed and what are the social and ecological benefits? Who were the partners involved? What species have recolonized the newly constructed pond? What's next for the ecological restoration of the area? Following the presentation, there will be an ecology demonstration by RVCA (net fish, frogs and aquatic insects in the pond and learn about their habitat). All equipment will be supplied including chest waders, gloves, nets, buckets, etc. Fun and informative for all ages.
