Niagara College's 'BioBlitz'

Niagara College will be helping residents get a better look at our own backyard eco-systems.

The college is hosting the fourth annual Spring BioBlitz tomorrow from 6 a.m. until 4 p.m. at the Niagara-On-The-Lake campus.

Participants will be identifying plant and animal species on the grounds and take part in several activities including guided hikes along NC's Wetlands Ridge Trail and sampling cricket flour cookies.

Scales Nature Park will also bring some reptiles and amphibians for a close up look between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m.

Anyone interested can sign up for the free event on EventBrite.
