New eDNA and Drone Tools for Studying Invasive Species and Species at Risk

Event Date: Thursday, October 27th    |    Event Time: 5 pm - 7 pm

Event Location: Elbow Lake Environmental Education Centre
1500 Hewlett-Packard Lane

 The biodiversity of lakes, rivers and wetlands of eastern Ontario has been profoundly impacted by human activity. Effectively monitoring biodiversity, invasive species, and species at risk is key to effective conservation of our watersheds.

This event will present novel tools that we are developing for monitoring biodiversity with drone and environmental DNA lab demonstrations. Included will be some discussion of major aquatic invasive species impacting our region, local species at risk, the progress of our ongoing work, and a roundtable on freshwater issues.

 Refreshments will be provided. Please dress for the weather, as some activities will take place outside.

Presented by Dr. Stephen Lougheed, Dr. Orianne Tournayre, Allen Tian (PhD Student), and Emily Verhoek.
