Miramichi Naturalists Club – It Will Be Sept. Soon!

(contact gadd1313@nb.sympatico.ca for details regarding 5 items listed below)

Hi All,

Time to start thinking about September … it will be here before we know it! J (tomorrow)

Our first meeting is TUESDAY September 13th. Our speaker is Ken Walker, topic, Escuminac Point (6:30, Sr. Citizens’ Centre, Nelson)

It will be a good time too for all of us to share our summer stories so come prepared … My favourite … to get it out of the way:

Deana and I and other passengers received a repeated enthusiastic tail wave from a whale (Humpback I think) as we left Grand Manan Island last week.

(I hope it wasn’t trying to free itself from fishing gear.) (Had the wrong lens with me L)

Above are a 5 emails attached. Some I have distributed earlier.

1. Costa Rica Birding Tour

2. Miramichi Marsh trail maintenance – a concern that our club should be interested in having resolved

3. Ducks Unlimited Presentation at the Rodd Hotel Sept. 7th … might be an opportunity too to get some insight into #2 above

4. NEW – Maritime Butterfly Pocket Guides from a very avid butterfly enthusiast Rick Cavasin – available

5. NEW – NCC is holding a beach clean-up and meet and greet at Escuminac Pt. Sept 10th … see email for details.

Shawn McCarthy is arranging for a mushroom workshop to be held in the near future with regards to Beaubears Island. Stay tuned.

Ken Walker has identified an area of Miramichi Marsh that needs cleaning up … we can discuss a date at our meeting.

I would like to thank Anne Assaff once more for the opportunity she provided our club for the Barnaby excursion a few weeks ago. Proved to be very interesting.

Peter
