Life in the Cold Lane with Michael Runtz
Webinar | December 2, 2021 | 7pm

Have you ever opened the door in the winter only to immediately rush back inside? Humans haven’t naturally adapted to the cold as well as some of our mammals, reptiles, insects and birds! Michael Runtz is back to teach you all about these amazing adaptations and behaviours that keep animals safe and warm in the winter!

Michael Runtz is one of Canada’s most highly respected naturalists, nature photographers, and natural history authors. 

Thank you to our wonderful sponsors, the Ontario Trillium Foundation and the Patrick Barbara Keenan Foundation, for making this presentation possible!
