Upper Canada Bird Sanctuary Winter Program

Every Saturday and Sunday (12noon to 4PM), the Friends of the Sanctuary opens the visitor centre on Morrison Road, off County road 2 between Ingleside and Morrisburg. For a modest fee, we offer ski and snowshoe equipment rentals, hot or cold drinks and snacks. There is no fee for using the groomed trails for skiing or the paths for snowshoeing and hiking. You can feed the birds and relax on the open deck, make snowmen and warm up by the fires afterwards.

Science and Nature on Tap with Dr. Glenn Benoy

Wednesday, February 6th, 2019, 7:00 pm Schnitzel’s Restaurant, 158 Pitt Street Cornwall. (Back room)
Lakes and rivers straddle major sections of the Canada-United States (US) border. The International Joint Commission (IJC) is known to many who live and work along the St. Lawrence River due to operations of the Moses-Saunders Dam. In addition to their role in management of water levels through the control structures in the Great Lakes Basin, they play a central role in the provision of advice and recommendations to the governments of Canada and the United States on water quality.

Dr. Glenn Benoy is the Senior Water Quality and Ecosystem Advisor to the Canadian Section of the IJC and is also a Fellow with the Canadian Rivers Institute (CRI). He advises both the IJC and the CRI on the science and management of shared waters – lakes and rivers and their watersheds – between Canada and the United States. He holds a PhD from the University of Guelph and he was a postdoc at the University of Calgary and the National Hydrology Research Centre in Saskatoon.
