“I love these webinars as they are both very educational as well as entertaining. You kind of brought me on a trip with you, a trip I could never afford to take. So thank you.” ― Speaker Series event participant
Connecting Manitobans to Nature
Get inspired to explore nature through free webinars hosted by local experts on birding, the northern lights, nature photography, snake dens, wilderness survival and much, much more.
Nature has been here for us during the pandemic.
CPAWS Manitoba wants to maintain this positive connection to nature by providing a space for people to connect online from the safety of our homes and to appreciate nature in our backyards and beyond.
Our goal is to help people discover new ways to enjoy getting outside and to learn about a wide variety of conservation topics.
We have been humbled by the response: nearly 3,000 people attended the first 22 webinars and 5,893 people from across Manitoba - and the globe - have registered.
The feedback has been heartwarming. Here are a couple of our favourites:
“I want to explore nature but have been scared of the unknown and my lack of knowledge and experience. This sort of presentation will help by making me more likely to do some nature exploring as my confidence builds.” — Maggie Goertzen, Wilderness Survival
“My special needs foster son was very interested with the birds workshop, and he wants to see and learn more. Because of that workshop, we went out to Birds Hill Park to bird watch.” — Birding for Beginners Participant
Another testament to the value of these Lunch and Learn webinars is the number of people who come back for more. Nearly 500 people have attended at least two webinars, and more than 50 registered for five or more.
