Members Night and Pot Luck
|Location:||Our regular meeting location|
As in past years, our last meeting before the summer break is a pot luck supper. 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 Dawn in advance at 905-384-2476 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.
Although the Club won't be meeting during the summer months, we will be participating in the Ridgeway Summer Festival on July 5th & 6th. This popular event gives us a wonderful opportunity to let the public know about our activities. We are always looking for volunteers that weekend and urge anyone with a couple of hours to spare to contact Lynda Goodridge, 905-871-5856.

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.
