An Invite from the Niagara Secular Humanists
Niagara At Large is pleased to promote the following meeting.
Posted by NAL publisher Doug Draper
On Tuesday, March 8th at 7 p.m., the Niagara Secular Humanists will be hosting a meeting featuring speaker Taylor Telford whose talk is titled; “Preserving the Landscape: Understanding and Appreciating Ecology.”
Taylor is one of a growing number of people across the Niagara, Ontario region s raising questions and concerns about an idea being explored by the Niagara Peninsula Conservation Authority to try something called “bio-diversity offsetting” – a technique that involves destroying natural wetlands for urban development, then attempting to construct a wetland as large or larger somewhere else, to make up for the loss.
Niagara At Large wishes to thank the Niagara Secular Huminists for hosting this meeting and speaker at a time when the Conservation Authority’s expressed interest in using Niagara as a “pilot” region for this controversial technique needs a full public airing in the weeks and months to come.
The March 8th meeting will begin at 7 p.m. at the Unitarian Congregation of Niagara at 223 Church Street in the downtown area of St. Catharines.
All are welcome to attend. Admission is $4 for non-members. NSH (Niagara Secular Humanists) members are free.
