Park Talk: The Invisible Micro-Universe

Ready to explore the world you can’t see?! Robert Berland’s presentation will include a wide variety of photographs and movies of micro-organisms found living in ponds, rivers, streams, moss and fields including close-ups of arthropods, protozoa, and tardigrades (water bears). This amazing universe of organisms is all around us, and these aliens can be photographed with a microscope and digital camera.

Most people have never seen the alien life that lives in our backyard, our gutters, and bird baths. Some of these tiny complex creatures do not age, they can withstand Ultra-violet light, X-rays, extreme temperatures, desiccation and even survive in the vacuum and cold of outer space.

When: May 21st from 6:30 pm – 8:00 pm at the Cochrane Public Library
