Our Guest Speaker
DAVID HAWKE
"THE HISTORIES OF WYE MARSH:
GEOLOGICAL, BIOLOGICAL AND SOCIAL"
The Wye Valley has changed is so many ways over the recent years, yet it remains almost unchanged in other historical ways. David Hawke, Stewardship Program Manager at the Couchiching Conservancy Land Trust, has worked in the Wye Valley with both federal and provincial agencies, as well as other groups and organizations. He has realized that this wetland has played a significant role in our understanding of how not only wetlands function, but also how social development of the area is closely tied to the biology of the site. David's presentation will summarize 14,000 fascinating and action-packed years in less than an hour. Though he wasn't there to witness all the excitement, he is a part of the Wye Marsh history and will share his insights. David is one of our favourite and most entertaining speakers, having presented to us on many occasions - most recently this past October on fungi and last spring on Fences.
As usual we will be fundraising by selling our 50/50 tickets and our MPFN Magic Bean Soup.
​MPFN Memberships are Family $45, Single $25, Under 30 FREE

​Once again we will be running our GREAT NATURE BOOK SALE. ​ You can bring along any used nature books you'd like to donate. Books donated will be resold for what the buyer thinks they're worth with all proceeds going to club operations.
Don't forget to Lug-A-Mug for refreshments after the meeting.
Thanks to Ellen Dennig for providing name tags for all members. Don't forget to pick yours up on the way into the meeting and then leave it in the box on your way out.
See You Thursday Night
