All outings and workshops are led by experts in their fields who are volunteering their services, for which we are most grateful. Dress appropriately for the weather: sun, wind, drizzle. Bring water and snacks, or a lunch if the event is over the lunch hour. Storm and high wind dates will be the following day. Changes and updates will be posted on the BNIA Facebook page and the notice board 'Events' postersat local marinas.Botany on the Bay

Explore the plant life of this this spectacular stretch of reef. Margaret Catto and Molly Mulloy will introduce you to some of the early summer wildflowers, and explain how the reef ecology provides them with a unique and challenging environment for flourishing. You will find plants adapted to dry rocky areas, wet boggy swales, and shoreline bays. Bring a camera or binoculars if desired, and a wildflower guide if you have one.

We are fortunate that Glen could squeeze us into his busy summer schedule. His show has enthralled old and young alike for several years, with at least one family organizing their holiday time around it! Glen performs from far northern reserves to provincial parks to New York City stages. Bring the whole family for an afternoon of educational entertainment and fun. Glen's work is based on his love and respect for the natural environment.
