Niagara-on-the-Lake has had a long and powerful relationship with its waterfront and on Thursday, June 16, environmentalist Owen Bjorgan hosts an in-person lecture examining that relationship.

“From one of the largest lakes in the world to the enormous volumes of the Niagara River, there is both worry and wonder – and that needs to be put in the spotlight for NOTL’s locals, decision makers, and visitors alike,” he said.

The 7:30 p.m. presentation is called “Worry and Wonder” and is at the NOTL Museum, 43 Castlereagh St.

Bjorgan promises a “fresh look” at Niagara’s world-class freshwater resource, a complement to the exhibition running at the museum, “All Along the Waterfront.”

Born and raised in Niagara, Bjorgan believes the best learning and life experiences happen in the field, experiencing Niagara’s massive biodiversity, wildlife, beauty and its natural water resources.

“There are many realistic and exciting opportunities to protect these special places,” he said. “And I will have you looking at your water wonderland backyard with a totally new perspective.”

Tickets are free for museum members, $10 for non-members. Registration is required.
