Misunderstood, and often vilified, Black Bears are creatures deserving of our respect and understanding. In a Wilderness Class Park such as Killarney, learning to coexist with bears is especially important because we are all visitors to land set aside for bears and the rest of the ecosystem to function without interference.

  • Citizen science Join Park Naturalists and learn how Citizen Science has shaped, and continues to shape, our world and our park. What does citizen science really mean? How can you become a citizen scientist for the park? Why do we need citizen scientists? Come prepared for an evening of inspiration as we explore our individual power to change the world.
  • Acid Rain: The Truth About Turquoise Lakes Have you ever wondered while paddling in Killarney why the lakes are so blue? Their beauty hides a traumatic past. Join us to learn how acid rain has damaged lake ecosystems, where it came from and how these lakes are slowly regaining their ecological integrity.
