Join us at 7:30 pm, Thursday, November 17, 2016 at the Almonte United Church Social Hall (106 Elgin St., Almonte) for the next presentation in MVFN’s Natural History presentation series “Wild Creature Close-Ups” . . .
“Birds in Your Backyard” will be presented by Cliff Bennett.

Well-known locally – a retired teacher and former Municipal Councillor – Cliff is an MVFN Champion for Nature, and currently sits on the MVFN Board of Directors and writes a birding column for the Lanark Era. Cliff has won many awards locally and provincially for the great many conservation and education initiatives he has headed up, including MVFN Christmas Bird Counts and other birding surveys contributing to bird conservation in Ontario, writing and publishing MVFN paddling and birding guides for exploring Lanark County, local “bioblitz” projects, and many other initiatives.
