Holiday Pot Luck Supper
Speakers: Dr. Tracy Gregg
Date: Dec 19
Time: 6:00 pm (Note time change)
Location: Our regular meeting location

Bring your appetite, a dish to share, and a place-setting, and plan to join us for our annual Holiday Pot Luck Supper. This is a festive time of year and it is always nice to share it with our Nature Club friends and family. As usual, we will have Beef on Weck for sale to complement the delicious savoury and sweet dishes that everyone brings.

Following our dinner, which begins at 6:00 pm, our speaker will be Dr. Tracy Gregg, whose intriguing topic is “Asteroid Impacts in the Context of Climate Change and Mass Extinctions”. We have all heard about climate change, but its relationship to asteroid impacts will add another dimension.

Dr. Gregg has been a faculty member in the Geology Department at the University at Buffalo since 1998, teaching courses ranging from “Dinosaurs” to “The Geology of Mars”. Her current research focus is on volcanoes in strange places.

Those who are unable to join us for dinner at 6:00 pm are welcome to come at 7:00 pm for the presentation. Members of the public are invited to attend as well.

This will be our last meeting of 2016, but we have more fascinating programs beginning in January. For a complete schedule, click here.

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.
