Lecture focuses on protecting nature

News Nov 06, 2009 Ancaster News

The Giant’s Rib Discovery Centre presents the Hamilton Naturalists' Club -Celebrating 90 Years of Protecting Nature with Jen Baker, land trust co-ordinator, Head-of-the-Lake Land Trust Program, as part of its ongoing Bruce Duncan Memorial Lecture Series.

The series, named in honour of the former general manager of the Hamilton Conservation Authority, is dedicated to promoting the Niagara Escarpment as an internationally recognized World Biosphere Reserve, as well as being a truly unique topographic feature of our natural and cultural heritage.

The naturalists’ club has been protecting and exploring natural spaces for 90 years. This had led to many conservation successes which range from tracking bird sightings to speaking out about conservation issues to permanently protecting land, including sections of the Niagara Escarpment.

Using stunning images Ms. Baker will describe the nature sanctuaries protected along the escarpment and the wildlife that depend on these areas, along with stewardship activities to care for the sanctuaries.

The presentation takes place Sunday, Nov. 8, 2 p. m. at the Dundas Valley Trail Centre, Dundas Valley Conservation Area, 650 Governor’s Rd., Dundas. Park entrance fee is a $3 per person, or a maximum $6 per car. No admission fee for children under 12. There is no charge for the lectures, but donations are welcome and appreciated.
