Pond Dip at Humber Arboretum

Thursday, 6 October 2022 - Come and discover the mysteries of pond life during Ravine Days! The Humber Arboretum has three ponds teeming with life. Our education team will lead you in safely and gently dipping a net into one of the ponds to see what organisms you can find in the water. Everything from aquatic insects to tadpoles and crayfish, you never know what you will find. We will help you identify and learn a little about the creatures you uncover. And don’t worry, none of the pond creatures will be out of the water for long; we will get everyone back in quickly, so as not to harm any of the organisms. - 209 Humber College Blvd, Etobicoke, ON M9W, Canada - Event Details
