Permethrin: Perfectly legal perfectly lethal. Permethrin is a broad spectrum synthetic pesticide and is registered for use in a wide variety of contexts. It is a neurotoxin, which means it interferes with normal nerve function, and it is highly toxic to insects, including our pollinators. Dr. Chris Brew's presentation seeks to raise awareness of the deleterious effects of permethrin on our wildlife, and to highlight the implications for all non-target species, including humans.

The Great Canadian Birdathon - Meet at Kerr Park at 7:00 a.m. Lagoon sightings will be first on the list before moving on to traditional birding locations. The goal is to count species, not birds, so lots of territory will be covered. Carpooling can be arranged before setting out from Kerr Park. Pledges collected are sent to Bird Studies Canada with the MFN receiving 25% of the proceeds. Come out for a great spring outing and be the one to find that rare species.
