Environmental  Citizens

3rd. Thursday 10:00 a.m.    Convenor: Mary Daniels

Enjoy this virtual interest group from your own comfortable environment. We will meet online via ZOOM, so weather will never get in the way of your taking part. You can even bring your favourite beverage. 

Our monthly meetings will address environmental concerns and feature specific topics each month. We will have active discussion groups within the meeting. Our goal is to create awareness of everyone’s responsibility to take environmental stewardship personally, to share practical tips and strategies for fulfilling those responsibilities, and to take action wherever possible.

Contact the convenor to put your name on the mailing list.

We depend on our environment: Our environment depends on us.
