Campus Connection

Fluff and dry grass are fire hazards
It’s hard to see the green through the thick haze of white poplar fluff floating around campus. And with our current heat wave the grass is dry. Please be cognizant of the potential for fires and ensure that ignition sources are controlled. Yesterday a grass fire occurred on campus and it is suspected that it was the result of a lit cigarette igniting poplar fluff. We appreciate your cooperation.

Happy Stampeding
The University of Calgary is proud to be part of the city that is host to the Greatest Outdoor Show on Earth—the Calgary Stampede. We wish our community a fun and safe Stampede. If you’re still looking for a great event to attend, register for the Alumni Stampede event, taking place Friday, July 15. Tickets still available.

Peregrine Falcon Alert
Two adult Peregrine Falcons have hatched two chicks on the nest site at Craigie Hall. These chicks will be ready to take their first flights soon. Unfortunately crash landings often occur during these early flying attempts, sometimes resulting in injury and the inability to fly.

If you find a suspected downed Peregrine Falcon call:
• Alberta Fish and Wildlife Division – 403-297-6423
• Inglewood Bird Sanctuary – call City of Calgary at 311
• Or after hours, call Campus Security – 403-220-5333
