Many HPSI members, and faithful HPSI blog followers, live in Peterborough, or within the Greater Peterborough Area, and therefore frequently benefit from the exceptional offerings of our postsecondary communities, Trent University and Fleming College. One of the wonderful things about living in the midst of academia is the opportunity to stay in tune with the latest in research on issues that impact our lives today, and influence our collective tomorrows.
Title: Suburban Connections: How rooftops and roadways impact local streams
Location: Meet at Fleming College, Brealy Campus, parking lot near tennis courts

The trails through Stenson Park all lead to the stormwater management pond that has become a haven for wild plants and animals capable of living in close proximity to suburban neighbours. The Stenson Park pond is a central feature of our community, putting people in touch with the natural environment and each other. But the pond is also an engineered structure, connecting the runoff from rooftops and roadways to our local stream, Harper Creek. Join our walk to discover and explore a suburban creek, and discuss the challenges that the built environment presents to streams and wetlands, and how we can make a difference!
