Upcoming Club Events
- Presentation: Spiders – Maligned, Misunderstood, but Marvellous! 7:00 pm, Thursday, November 20, The Exploration Place
This presentation by Staffan Lindgren might or might not offer a cure for arachnophobia, but is guaranteed to keep you on the edge of your seat. Come a few minutes early and get ready with a cup of coffee courtesy of The Exploration Place.
- BC Nature General Meeting, 2016 — in Prince George?
The Club is considering acting as host in 2016 to the BC Nature Fall or Spring General meeting. Up to 200 naturalists would descend on Prince George for a long weekend, taking part in presentations and field trips. But volunteers will be needed to plan and organize the event: if you’re willing and able, we’d love to hear from you. Contact Allan Carson: Allan.Carson@alumni.unbc.ca .
