The Niagara Parks Commission is pleased to welcome a new family-friendly, educational exhibit “Wild Ontario – A Celebration of Ontario’s Biodiversity,” that will be taking place at the Niagara Parks Butterfly Conservatory from Saturday, April 29 to Sunday, June 11.
The Wild Ontario exhibit, created by Little Ray’s Reptile Zoo, builds on Niagara Parks’ planned Begin Here Ontario 150 celebratory initiatives and was developed and supported by the provincial government’s Ontario150 funding program. The exhibit will present a variety of at risk species of mammals, amphibians, birds, fish, reptiles and invertebrates, as well as their habitats within Ontario’s three unique Eco Zones, with a focus on spreading awareness of various threatened species and habitats and how concerned citizens can help make a difference in protecting and preserving these natural sites and species.
