2016 Conference & Annual General Meeting
Friday, May 27, to Sunday, May 29
This year our weekend get-together will be at the gorgeous KC Irving Environmental Science Centre at Acadia University in Wolfville, with rooms, meals, hiking, and nature just steps away.
Once again we are happy to combine interests and forces with the Young Naturalist Clubs for the weekend.
This is a social, learning, and outdoor experience event for naturalists. On Friday night, registration will be followed by a wine and cheese reception. Saturday morning will feature the usual early-morning nature walks and breakfast, followed by informative and entertaining illustrated talks by two esteemed experts in their fields: Rob Raeside (Acadia U.) and Donna Crossland (Parks Canada). The afternoon will feature a choice of field trips. That evening we will participate in the Farmworks May Flavours Gala Dinner – a banquet of locally sourced farm products in a variety of dishes created by local chefs.
On Sunday morning, following walks, breakfast, and an address by Ted Leighton (Canadian Cooperative Wildlife Health Centre), our Nature Nova Scotia annual general meeting begins at 10 am. More field trips will be available in the afternoon.
We hope you can join us for an informative, fun, and unforgettable weekend!
