Connecting people with nature in Ontario's Mississippi Valley

Nature Talk September 16,2021. The Climate Emergency

Welcome to the ’21-’22 series of nature talks offered by the Mississippi Valley Field Naturalists.  The new theme of our talks for the coming year is “Human Interactions with the Natural World“.  Continuing, for at least the three upcoming talks, will be a Zoom presentation format.  This has allowed us to go further afield for some of our speakers, while also featuring some of our local experts in their fields.

Starting off the new season will be a timely presentation by Grant Linney.  In the words of Grant, once science unequivocally presents you with a problem (e.g., climate change), we must solve it. It’s not too late — yet.

Grant Linney is an actively retired outdoor and environmental educator. Trained by Al Gore in 2010 to become a Climate Reality presenter, he has now delivered more than 650 presentations on climate change, constantly updating his talks with the latest science.

As with previous nature talks, you must be a MVFN member in good standing. Reminder – the MVFN membership year extends from April 1 to March 31 of the following calendar year.  If you need to join or renew your membership, please go to our website in the JOIN US section and complete the membership form.
