Ever wonder who is visiting your feeder or what that dragonfly might be called? How about identifying that pretty flower in the woods or who left those tracks?
To increase awareness of local wildlife, The Arboretum has put together seven booklets to help you and your family connect with nature. Spiders of The Arboretum shows the local diversity of these fascinating arachnids. Mushrooms of The Arboretum showcases the many different interesting fungi that grow here. Spring Woodland Wildflowers of The Arboretum features the showy forest flowers of May. Mammals of the Arboretum not only shows what furry animals might be in your neighbourhood, but what tracks they leave. Feeder Birds of the Arboretum covers winter birds that you might find in your backyard. Summer Garden Birds will help you identify your warm season birds. Dragonflies of The Arboretum shows the diversity of these mosquito eaters. Learn how to identify dragonflies with fun names such as meadowhawk, snaketail, amberwing, dasher and emerald.

Biodiversity Identification Sheets
Sometimes it is easier to identify animals and plants if you can see a lot of images at once instead of looking through a book. These double-sided, 11 X 17 inch, laminated sheets allow the viewer to scan through 53 colourful images in a flash. We have field tested most of these on all ages, from preschool to retirees, with great results - everyone loves them! Some are organised to cover specific habitats and some concentrate on specific groups of organisms. The sheets also make great placemats; one of our volunteers has a 2.5-year-old grandson who can identify all of the insects on the goldenrod sheet and he learned them all while eating at grandpa and grandma's house! We are also working on activity sheets that will help you learn about each group. Click here to see what we have so far.
