February 12th is International Darwin Day, so we focus on science and nature at our February meetings.
This year’s meeting will be about sex.
Dr. Doolittle meets Dr. Ruth in this fun and fascinating exploration of animal sexuality.
Discover the amazing diversity of ways in which animals determine sex, the evolution of sexual behaviour, and adaptations for mating and same-sex encounters.
Naturalist Dr. Heather Hinam will take you on a light-hearted exploration of everything from the tiniest invertebrates to the largest animals on earth and leave you with a new perspective on a universal subject.
Heather Hinam combines a Ph.D. in ecology with over 20 years of experience as a nature and heritage interpreter, and is an award-winning artist and photographer. Her presentations have been educating, inspiring and engaging audiences all over Manitoba and Alberta; and now the world, though the TEDx talks channel. She will open your eyes to the wonder of nature and inspire you to reconnect with your world in a meaningful way. Let Heather introduce you to the weird, wild, and wonderful details of the natural world around you and inspire you to broaden your horizons, let nature back into your life, and explore your world to the fullest.
