Butterfly & Pollinator Festival
Speakers: Butterfly & Pollinator Festival
Date: June 12
Time: 11:00 am – 3:00 pm
Location: Stevensville Conservation Area (Free Admission)

Join The Bert Miller Nature Club on Sunday, June 12th, from 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m., at the Stevensville Conservation Area, 2555 Ott Rd., Stevensville, for the third Butterfly Festival in the Fort Erie area.

Plan to spend a fun filled day learning all about butterflies and other pollinators. There are plenty of activities for everyone to enjoy, such as nature hikes, guest speakers, native plant sale, kids' activities, displays and a community planting event.

A new addition this year is a photo stand where visitors can use our pollinator panel for a unique "selfie". Little ones will also be kept busy with creative crafts and games.

The Fort Erie Conservation Club will also have soup, sandwiches, tea and coffee for sale for hungry visitors.

Entrance to this family friendly event is free, so be sure to bring the kids.

The Butterfly Festival is sponsored by The Bert Miller Nature Club, the Fort Erie Conservation Club, the Niagara Peninsula Conservation Authority, and volunteers from various organizations in Niagara.

Our Shared Concern
The 10 Melbourne Principles

The increasing conflict between human activities and the biosphere is unsustainable – the climate is changing, biodiversity is decreasing, habitats are being lost and most ecological systems have been significantly altered. If human society is going to prosper in the future, we must immediately adopt ecologically sustainable practices. In 2002 the U.N. Environmental Program proposed the "Melbourne Principles" as a guide to an equitable and sustainable future. In 2009 the Region of Niagara incorporated these principles into the Regional Policy Plan. The Bert Miller Nature Club is now asking that everyone in the environmental community become familiar with the Melbourne Principles and insist that they be applied in their communities as the standard of practice.
