Can We Learn to Live with Urban Canada Geese?

What are Guelph's options for managing Canada Geese?

Guelph’s riversides attract many people each year as we seek the joys and escape offered by our few urban natural areas. These same places attract a growing population of Canada Geese. Where there were a couple just a few years ago there are now hundreds. As a result, riverside areas are covered with excrement, water quality is diminished, roadside collisions are increasing and incidents involving physical injury have been noted.  How can we respect other living things and yet manage this problem?

This event will include a presentation from Canada Goose specialist Christ Sharp, Canadian Wildlife Service, followed by panel and audience discussion. Let’s determine how we can balance respect for wildlife with people’s desire to enjoy our river lands and the costs of achieving this to build social consensus moving forward.
