MNC Nov. 8 Meeting – Early Reminder

Hi All,

An early reminder about our next meeting, Tuesday Nov. 8th. We are having a speaker coming from Truro, Nova Scotia, below is the text of a press release I am distributing to local media. I am hoping that we will have a strong turn-out at this meeting as Helene is travelling a long way to speak to us and her topic is one of great concern for wildlife. Please encourage anyone you know who might be interested to attend. The public will be very welcome. Peter

Attached is a brochure about the issue.

MNC Press Release October 31, 2016:

“Non-Lead Hunting and Fishing

Helen van Doninck of the Cobequid Wildlife Rehabilitation Centre, Truro NS, will be the guest speaker at the November 8th meeting of the Miramichi Naturalists’ Club. She will be speaking of the unintentional but serious poisoning threat to wildlife that results from hunting and fishing with lead based equipment.

In addition to her presentation at the meeting she will be offering to exchange lead fishing tackle for tackle made from other non-poisonous metals. Members of the public are welcome to attend.

The Miramichi Naturalists’ Club meets at the Nelson Friendly Sr. Citizens Centre, 27 Sutton Rd. at 6:30.
