December is a traditional time for various media outlets to do a review of that year’s highlights. It’s fun to see the occasional nature item included, but such stories certainly don’t make up the bulk of these summaries. So this year for the first time ever HFN has decided to create its own year end synopsis. This one will focus on the top nature news from around the world with the greatest emphasis on items that impacted Nova Scotia the most. In this modern day world where our eyes and ears are bombarded with so much information it’s easy to miss news about the nature we love. However, this presentation is about more than just catching up on nature highlights – it’s also a chance, through vivid imagery, to relive some of our favourite nature moments of the year.
Our annual Members’ Holiday Social will take place after the above talk. Please bring your sweets or savouries and non-alcoholic beverages to the usual meeting area. A subscription to the Halifax Field Naturalist would also make a good holiday gift! Bring your money or a cheque. Please note – there are no facilities for heating food.
