Come join in the fun at our annual 5K walk or run! This year’s theme, the “Shorebird Shuffle,” will have race shirts designed by AOS student member Emily Griffith featuring a shorebird common across Canada’s lakes: the Spotted Sandpiper (Actitis macularius). Just like the Spotted Sandpiper, we’re looking forward to bopping along the shoreline of London’s Thames River with participants of all ages and abilities!

Maggie MacPherson, Coordinator

Research Associate, l’Universite Laval

Maggie is from the far north in Canada and studies what drives avian range dynamics at short (seasonal), medium (last century), and long (evolutionary) time scales. Their research focuses on studying the evolution of migration, & impacts of climate change on distributions. They currently study how climate change may impact boreal forest bird populations by integrating avian point count data from boreal and hemi-boreal forests in North America.
