One new bird species spotted at Dawson during May birdwatching mornings
In total, 14 people showed up for two early-morning birdwatching events at Dawson last month.
“Although it was unusually cold and migration delayed because of the cold spring, we managed to identify 15 species and add one new species to the Dawson Bird List: a house finch, bringing the total species seen to 55 on campus. A red-tailed hawk and pileated woodpecker were among the highlights,” reported organizer Chris Adam of the Sustainability Office.
A nesting robin is also present in one of the trees, Chris noted. The photo of a chipping sparrow was captured another year by Doug Smyth of Physical Education. The chipping sparrow has nested successfully in the Peace Garden area for three years now.
Swap Your Stuff: new Dawson community Yammer channel
As moving season approaches for many, it’s a good time to let you know that there is a new Yammer group for the Dawson community called Swap Your Stuff- Dawson College. College Nurse Julie Gosselin created it as her final project for her Sustainable Happiness course this year.
“It's basically an online platform to help people find, donate or swap their gently used stuff. Everything has to be free and it is meant to encourage solidarity and reuse amongst Dawson College community members, both staff and students,” Julie explained.

Dawson community enjoyed being together again at BBQ
It was so nice to have a big Dawson community event for the first time in more than two years! More than 800 students and employees were treated to ice cream and almost the same number enjoyed a BBQ meal outside on campus May 10. Food was served by our cafeteria staff and from food trucks and there was live music.
Thanks to Campus Life and Leadership, Student Services, the Dawson Student Union, Facilities Management, Information Systems and Technology and Director General Diane Gauvin!
