ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING 2016

The Annual General Meeting will take place at Morningside Community Hall on May 2, 2016 at 7:00 p.m.  Charlie Bird will be our guest speaker and will do a presentation on Alberta Amphibians and Reptiles.  There will be a few door prizes to be drawn and refreshments will be served after the meeting.  Everyone welcome. Memberships are due at this time.  It’s volunteers, memberships and donations that keep the area beautiful.

The JJ Collett AGM was held at the Morningside Hall.  Charlie Bird did a presentation on Alberta Amphibians and Reptiles.  It was very interesting to find out what was hiding at JJ Collett.  Some of the creatures included toads, salamanders, frogs, tadpoles, turtles, lizards and snakes.  He encourages everyone to get your cameras out and start snapping pictures.  We are very grateful for all the work Charlie does for JJ Collett.  You will often see him on Saturday mornings walking the trails.

The spring walk was well attended with approximately 65-70 people.  Medicine River Wildlife Centre had two great horned owls that were released into the wild.  It was quite humbling to see them fly and perch themselves into a tree.  Hopefully the remain at JJ. Charles Bird lead a short walk, and Kelly B. lead a longer walk.

Thanks to Hamiltons I.G.A. and Clearly A View Window Cleaning
