Volunteer Appreciation Day Sept 8 Over ninety of The Friends' Volunteers braved lashing rain and gale force winds to attend The Volunteer Appreciation Lunch. Closely packed into the new picnic shelter, they had the opportunity to meet and chat to the many people involved with our diverse and growing organization.

Short speeches by the Chair Steve Sinclair and Tone Careless of the Education Committee were supported by a highlight of the Kids n Nature School Group and Summer Camp programs by Kristin McFarlane, Kids n Nature Interpreter.

They were also wonderfully entertained by Phil Careless who brought along The Critter Cart. This vehicle goes where no naturalist has gone before, into picnic areas, camp grounds and beach parties. Taking our Nature Centre out to those who didn't know what they needed to know.
