the 30 Years Later Expedition
a transCanada Biological Survey
in celebration of the
International Year of Biodiversity,
and in partnership with the
Canadian Museum of Nature,
will embark in March of 2010
to cross Canada from coast to coast.
Fred Schueler and Aleta Karstad
of Bishops Mills
Natural History Centre
will revisit the landscape they have traveled over the past 30 years,
surveying species, describing, sketching and painting.
During a full year of travel,
the 30 Years Later Expedition will revisit and check the condition of
ecological communities and populations of plants and animals, some of
them now Species At Risk. Aleta will paint and draw enroute as Fred
adds valuable new data to historical records, in a database partnership
with the Canadian Museum of Nature.
A rare long term study in an age of short term projects, 30 Years Later
welcomes contributions from amateur naturalists and scientists, to
suggests and add to our itinerary of revisits across Canada.
We invite everyone to meet us enroute, to see what we've found, and
participate in the biological survey - an important baseline for the
study of ecology and the environment in Canada.
