Bruce Duncan Memorial Lecture Series

Mar 23 | 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm | Hamilton Waterfront Trust Centre, 57 Discovery Drive

The Giant’s Rib Discovery Centre (GRDC) presents Liz Benneian, co-founder of the
four-member Trumpeter Swan Coalition, speaking on the efforts of volunteers to restore
populations of Trumpeter Swans on Sunday March 23, 2014 from 2 to 3 p.m. at the
Hamilton Waterfront Trust Centre, 57 Discovery Drive, Hamilton.

Explore one of Ontario's most remarkable comeback stories — how the world's largest swan, native only to North America, the magnificent Trumpeter, was brought back after 96 years of extinction in this Province through 30 years of work by dedicated volunteers. With plans underway to develop their overwintering grounds at LaSalle Park in Burlington, learn about the most recent threat Trumpeters face.

Seating is on a first-come, first-served basis. Doors will open at 1:30 p.m. and complimentary refreshments and door prizes are available after the presentation. Parking is free. Admission for the program is $5. Further donations to help cover program costs are greatly appreciated.

The Bruce Duncan Memorial Lecture Series runs once a month from September through May. This series presents topics relevant to the Niagara Escarpment World Biosphere Reserve as a part of the GRDC’s public education programs.
