Member’s Meeting Nov 27, 7:30pm – Nina Newington and the Save Our Old Forests campaign

The next member’s meeting will be at the Museum of Natural History, downstairs auditorium and via Zoom on Monday Nov 27, 7:30pm.

Nina Newington and other citizen scientists are playing a key role in the effort to protect the proposed Goldsmith Lake Wilderness Area in Annapolis County. To date they have identified 27 Species At Risk occurrences (principally lichens), halting logging operations for now. They recently discovered an area of old-growth forest where DNRR maps showed only forest under 80 years old. Nina will present an overview of their explorations and the Save Our Old Forests campaign which recently expanded to include Halifax County.

The Museum is at 1747 Summer Street. Access is through the downstairs door facing the parking lot. Members will be sent a Zoom link prior to the event.
