We’re 40 now!

Approximately 100 people attended HFN’s 40th Birthday celebration held at the clubhouse of the Ashburn Golf Club in Halifax on Thursday evening, Oct. 1. Highlights were a talk by poet and nature writer Harry Thurston, the cutting of the cake by Debra Burleson (one of the seven signers of the Memorandum of Association in 1975) and presentation of the Colin Stewart Conservation Award to the Nova Scotia Nature Trust. In the photos: Harry Thurston, Janet Dalton (President of HFN) and Debra Burleson (Photos courtesy of Dr. George Mitchell). The final event in a series over the past year celebrating our 40th is a hike on Martinique Beach on Sunday Oct 4 led by Scott Cunningham (another of the seven signers of the Memorandum of Association in 1975); is a repeat of HFN’s very first field trip on October 26th, 1975. The Public is welcome. View details for the hike on our Walks & Talks Page. View events of 40 years ago in our Archived Newsletters.
