Comox Valley Nature is offering an opportunity to connect with nature at its annual general meeting on Feb. 25, from 3-5 p.m. at Comox United Church, Church Hall, 250 Beach Drive in Comox.
The public is invited to learn about Comox Valley Nature and join the society. The meeting will introduce leaders of the different interest groups who will give short presentations.
The interest groups include birders, botany, marine and shoreline, nature photography, nature walks and habitat restoration.
The birders’ group has weekly field trips and posts the results on ebird.org/home. They also participate in the annual Christmas bird counts as well as trumpeter swan counts in the area.
The botany group had a recent outing to Kitty Coleman Park to view fall fungi – see images of their amazing finds at comoxvalleynaturalist.bc.ca/kitty-coleman-fungi-fall-2023/.
CVN’s habitat restoration teams do important work at Courtenay Airpark, Little River Nature Park and other locations. As part of its educational mandate, CVN hosts guest speakers who share their expertise on natural history and environmental issues. The AGM is a good chance to join the society and get involved in its activities.
Meetings and lectures of the Comox Valley Naturalists Society are normally held on a Sunday of most months and are open to the public, including children and youth. For more information about CVN, see the society’s website, comoxvalleynaturalist.bc.ca
