Our evening program series is winding down for the summer with our Pot Luck Dinner and Members' Share Night on Monday, June 15th. This is a chance to share not only our culinary specialties, but also photos, digital images and nature objects provided by some of our members. Just bring your own place setting and a favourite dish to share with the group. If you have any nature photos, stories or collections, why not bring them along for our show & tell session following the dinner? Please contact Lynda in advance at 905-871-5856 so she can organize that part of the evening. The June meeting is a perfect way to welcome summer and we invite one and all to join us. To those of you who are unable to attend, we wish you a summer full of nature's splendour.
Mark your calendar for Sunday, June 21st, and join us for our Family Butterfly and Dragonfly Hunt. We will meet at 9:00 am at the Stevensville Conservation Area and will be visiting several locations. Paul Philp is our fearless leader and the day will be fun for all ages. Feel free to bring the youngsters to help with the hunt. For more information, contact Paul at 905-894-2723

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.
