Prince George Naturalists Club: Excellent News plus events, May 16 2014


News and Events

1. Terrific News: $15,000 Grant from Pacific Salmon Foundation for the Wetland Project

The Club’s media release announcing this grant, which should allow phase one of the wetland project to be completed in 2014, read it in the Pacific Salmon Foundation Grant News Release.

2. Wetland Project Information Night, Thursday May 29 from 6:30 to 9:00 pm, Exploration Place

As you’ll see from the media release, this evening is for members only, though new members could sign up at the start of the meeting. The meeting will first provide an overview of the overall project in general and Phase One in particular, and describe what the Channel trail project might look like based on field visits and professional advice. This will be followed by a walk of the route to get feedback and any new insights. The goal is to get Phase 1 completed this year, so feedback from members is needed as soon as possible.
