Natural History Speaker Series: Learn From The Experts
From September to May, on the third Thursday of the month, MVFN hosts nature talks by noted experts, exploring everything from nature in the region to global environmental issues. Talks are normally held at the Almonte United Church at 150 Elgin Street in Almonte, Ontario. Recent nature talk topics have included: turtles, hidden signals in the natural world and arctic adventures.
In January we will be beginning presentations on our new theme of “Eye Wonder: The Magic and Mystery of Our Natural World”. The winter schedule will be as follows:
January 21, 2021 Michael Runtz Algonquin Wild
February 18, 2021 Owen Clarkin What is Happening to Our Trees?
March 18, 2021 Paul Keddy Wetlands
April 15, 2021 Modified Spring Gathering – stay tuned for details
By necessity, until further notice, all talks will be held on the Zoom platform (don’t worry, if you haven’t yet used it, it’s very straightforward). The required link will be sent out to members in good standing prior to each meeting. Meetings are generally from 6:45 pm to 8:15 pm. They include a review of members’ nature sightings during the past month, led by our resident expert, Ken Allison.
