———– Past Meetings ————–
1) Our speaker was Paul Oliver, of the Urban Nature Store. (These stores are in Pickering and Oshawa, as well as other locations in this area.)
Paul’s presentation was about “Gardening to Attract Birds”, with a focus on using different types of feeders, plants and landscape designs to help attract birds, and the importance of making birds feel safe and comfortable in our man-made environment.
2) Since we did not have our Annual General Meeting in November, it was held as part of the Jabuary meeting.
