Marine biologist speaks at MWPS AGM

The guest speaker at the Macdonald Wood Park Society AGM will discuss Macdonald Wood and its relationship to the Comox Estuary.

SPEAKER JOHN TAYLESS will address the Macdonald Wood Park Society at its AGM.

The guest speaker at the Macdonald Wood Park Society (MWPS) annual general meeting will discuss Macdonald Wood and its relationship to the Comox Estuary.

John Tayless is a well-known marine biologist with professional focus on the tropical coral reefs of Borneo and Hawaii. While Comox Bay isn’t known for coral reefs, he delights in exploring the local estuarine environment and the intertidal zone.

This free talk is scheduled for April 10 at 7 p.m. at St. Peter’s Hall, 218 Church St. in downtown Comox.

All are welcome — members and non-members, and refreshments will be served. A short AGM will follow Tayless’ informative and entertaining talk.

With the aroma of blooming skunk cabbage already in the air, Macdonald Wood Park will soon be filled with forest-floor spring flowers — a great time for a stroll along the paths.

Mac Wood’s main entrance is on Balmoral Avenue at Croteau Road in Comox.

MWPS is the park’s volunteer steward group, with recent attention to the removal of invasive species and the planting of new trees and shrubs that respect the forest’s natural succession. New members are always welcome.

E-mail MWPS@shaw.ca for more information, or come to the 2013 AGM on April 10th.
