Two great storytellers—Rory MacKay and Michael Runtz—combine on Friday, April 28, 2017 for a dynamic and informative evening on the human and natural history of our area:
Axes to Ashes; Singing Saws to Howling Wolves
HOW LUMBERING CHANGED THE NATURE OF THE OTTAWA VALLEY
Rory MacKay, author and long-time “student” of logging history, will transport us back 200 years to the rich forests of historic logging days while our Macnamara president, Carleton University teacher and naturalist Michael Runtz will interpret how the events and practices of those years brought about today’s array of plants and animals.
The presentations, which begin at 7 p.m., will raise funds for the Macnamara Nature Trail extension project. Doors open at 6 p.m. so come early to check out the displays from local organizations.
Tickets are $15 advance, $10 for ages 18 and under, and $20 at the door. They are available locally as of April 4 at the Arnprior Library, Gillagallou Birds (Almonte and Ottawa) and online now through the club.
Tickets will also be available at our April 4 meeting.
Spread the word and help us sell out!
