From a Niagara Parks Commission press release seen at Niagara at Large:
This August 18th, The Niagara Parks Commission officially launched its new pollinator exhibit, Saving the Pollinators; Our World Depends on It, at the Butterfly Conservatory with an announcement and unveiling led by Niagara Parks Chair, Janice Thomson.
At this new bilingual exhibit, visitors can learn more about Ontario’s pollinating species, from bees to hummingbirds, who, despite their small size, play a major role in maintaining our environment.
From a Niagara Parks Commission press release seen on Niagara at Large:
The Niagara Parks Commission is pleased to welcome a new family-friendly, educational exhibit “Wild Ontario – A Celebration of Ontario’s Biodiversity,” that will be taking place at the Niagara Parks Butterfly Conservatory from Saturday, April 29 to Sunday, June 11.
Visitors will be introduced to various fascinating species of mammals, amphibians, birds, fish, reptiles and invertebrates, all native to this province. Interactive and bilingual displays will explain Ontario’s three different Ecozones: the Hudson Bay Lowlands, the Ontario Shield and the Mixed Wood Plains, as well as the unique regions and habitats that can be found within these Ecozones.
From the Niagara Falls Review:
There are a bunch of dead bodies inside an old baby food factory in Niagara Falls.
And their caretakers invite the public to come and see.
“You get to a certain age you think there are very few things that will make your jaw drop. This is one of them,” Linus Hand said.
Hand, who co-owns the local theatre company Silver Mist Productions, has brought the world-renowned Bodies … The Exhibition to the former Gerbers and Niagara Falls Tourism building at Stanley Ave. and Highway 420.
The building is now known as the Niagara Exhibition Centre.
More than 15 million people have viewed the travelling exhibit since 2004, the year it started touring the world.
Like I mentioned before, I found about the press day too late, so I wasn’t able to go. However, I have arranged to see the exhibit another time, so I’ll definitely write about it at that point.
