MVFN Outreach

Recently, Cliff Bennett, well-known MVFN member and founding member of the club took part in’Outdoor Recreation and the Natural Environment’ a workshop for the Rural Recreation Association, and sponsored by the Healthy Communities Partnership of Lanark, Leeds & Grenville. The workshop was held March 22, 2013 at the Beckwith Recreation Centre.

Cliff presented a slide show and talk to promote and educate about the benefits of outdoor recreation for all ages. This included providing general information about our club as well as the many opportunities for outdoor recreation with the club, i.e. MVFN’s active canoe and kayak program and brochure, birding activity, walks and our new Young Naturalists program. Cliff thanks MVFN member  Howard Robinson for his help in providing the photos used and in  preparing the presentation slide material.   The presentation can be seen as a pdf by clicking  here.
