This event is a part of Paradise Revisited series. McMaster University’s natural lands and environs are the setting for an ambitious, multi-facted, six-month-long initiative which welcomes faculty, staff, students and community members to re-acquaint themselves with our rich landscape

Activities include field trips, panel discussions, lectures, readings, art activities and exhibitions. Participants are provided with sketchbooks to document their observations; and these sketchbooks will be shared at a showcase on October 25.
