This September, Laskeek Bay Conservation Society is excited to be taking part in Science Literacy week - a cross-country celebration of science in Canada! After a fantastic 28th field season on East Limestone Island, we're using this week as an opportunity to share our love for seabirds with youth, and to promote some of the incredible research, led by researchers and citizen scientists, happening on Haida Gwaii. There will be activities for all beginning on September 17th, and wrapping up on the 24th.
Kids from grades 5-8 will come learn about the life of a bird, from egg to adulthood, while engaging in the world of research and accessible science. Lunch and snacks provided.
SEPT 17th: 9am-3pm, Old Masset Youth Centre
SEPT 24th: 9am-3pm, Skidegate Youth Centre
Open to all, a varied group of scientists and volunteers will speak about their experiences with local research on Haida Gwaii, and what they've learned along the way. Refreshments will be served, and door prizes will be won!
SEPT 19th: 7-8:30pm, CLASSROOM 1 at the Haida Heritage Centre
(speakers and topics to be announced soon)
