MFNC AGM: The Nature of Canada: a Naturalists’ Journey across this Great Country

Twenty fast-acting people can be part of a special audience for a brand new Michael Runtz nature talk based on the diverse habitats and wildlife he encountered on a recent cross-Canada road trip.

On December 3, 2019, members of the Macnamara Field Naturalists’ Club (MFNC) will hold their Annual General Meeting at the Arnprior Curling Club; after the business part of the meeting, which will run from 7:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m., Runtz—a founding member and club president — will do a special presentation on The Nature of Canada: A Naturalist’s Journey across this Great Country.

From Badgers and Bighorn Sheep to Sea Otters and Steller Sea Lions, Michael’s cross-Canada road trip provided myriad encounters with wildlife in many different ecological settings ranging from prairie and mountain peaks to tidal pools and oceanic islands.

His highly visual presentation will be an overview of the rich diversity of habitats and wildlife encountered on this remarkable journey.

The “seats” for the evening are free for MFNC members, but the club is making available 20 tickets at $20 each to non-members who would like to attend the talk portion beginning at 8:30 p.m.

  • The 20 tickets are being sold online with no refunds.
  • Each ticket is $20, but for an extra $5 on their arrival purchasers can choose to join the club for the remainder of the 2019-2020 year.
  • Ticket purchasers are asked to arrive no earlier than 8:15 p.m.

Tickets are on sale now.
