General InformationNew time and day of the week for our meetings The good news is that whenever we can safely resume our in-person club meetings they’ll continue to be held at the Arnprior Curling Club. We’ve secured our traditional meeting space at the club and we’ll see you there once we are sure of a safe return. However, based on the latest public health announcements, it won’t be for a while longer and until further notice, we’ll continue our meetings virtually via Zoom and limit them to club members. The curling club had asked us to change our booking to Wednesdays so we have been securing speakers for upcoming meetings based on that requirement. Also, given how late our recent meetings have been running, we agree, as members have suggested, that we should start our meetings earlier. So, beginning with our September meeting, club meetings will begin at 7:00 p.m. One more change for September only. While club meetings will be the first Wednesday of each month, our September 2021 club meeting will be held on September 8, the second Wednesday of the month. Field trips will resume as COVID restrictions ease up.

Our president’s Great Naturalist Quiz lives on! As you likely guessed, due to Covid-19 and our virtual format we will not break into teams this year, so you will be your own team. The 2022 quiz will engage your brain cells to identify photos of a variety of natural history subjects, plus solve some nature trivia questions and as usual, a few riddles. Points will be awarded not only for correct answers but also for imaginative ones! You can write down your answers and when the clock stops ticking enjoy the entertaining discussion of the solutions.
A prize—one of Michael’s newest books: Wildflowers of Algonquin Provincial Park—will be awarded to the person with the most points!
