The 30 Years Later Expedition a trans-Canada 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. We’ll revisit the landscape we 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.
