Meetings

 

 

Meetings run From September to April with the exception of December and are normally on the fourth Thursday of the month at the Nova Scotia Museum of Natural History (NSMNH) in Halifax. They start at 7:30 and last about 2 hours. These meetings are open to the general public. We try to have one meeting that is out of Halifax and those special meetings will be listed here as well.

 

 

 

 

Thursday, September 28, 2017 - Robie Tufts, His Life and Legacy - Mark Elderkin

Time: 7:30PM - NS Museum of Natural History, Main floor Gallery

You cannot talk about the early beginnings of birding in Nova Scotia without the tremendous influence that Robie Tufts made to the understanding of birds in this province. His teaching and generous sharing of bird lore attracted many young people in the Wolfville to eagerly learn from him. Mark Elderkin will share a bit of the history as well as his personal stories of his 18 year friendship with Dr. Tufts.  

Mark Elderkin is our Nova Scotia Provincial Species at Risk Biologist working for the Department of Natural Resources in Kentville.

 

Thursday, October 26, 2017 -  A is for Adventure - Chris Surette and Jan LaPierre

Time: 7:30PM - Lower auditorium

Join us to see how getting outdoors, finding activities and encouraging youth to see our natural beauty and the birds and animals can enrich our lives. Jan and Chris are the co-founders of A for Adventure and are heard regularly on CBC Radio promoting healthy outdoor activity often promoting the NSBS and birding when interviewed.
