The ‘What’s Alive in Hamilton’ wildlife checklists have been created for the public to use while out in Hamilton’s natural areas. Wildlife checklists are designed to add to the enjoyment of being outside by letting one know what species are out there, and which may not. To learn how to identify specific species listed in the ‘What’s Alive in Hamilton’ wildlife checklists, consult field guides, animal apps on smart phones, and participate in nature programs within your community.
