Not so long ago, Welland Riding MPP Cindy Forster managed to fill a room full of concerned citizens at the Fuzzy Logic to discuss biodiversity and wetlands. With all the continued discussion around wetlands, please take a moment to look at the following upcoming event, sponsored by the Niagara Land Trust Foundation.

It is planned as an evening of information and interaction, plus a chance to let off some steam along with the locally renown group, the Deacons of Jazz!

The Niagara Land Trust is hosting a special event – A Night of Wetlands & Jazz Bands – that combines awareness of wetlands & their impacts from biodiversity off-setting and an evening of socializing & meeting new conservation friends.

The event is June 11th at the Riverstone Event Centre on 414 River Road in Welland, Ontario and starts at 7 pm with a social and music by the Holy Cross Catholic High School jazz band.

Steven Housell, Chair of Ontario’s Biodiversity Council and past President of Ontario Nature will explain biodiversity off-setting and how it is supposed to be used in land-use planning. Guests will then be treated to a snack buffet followed by the jazz-funk-pop band – the Deacons of Jazz.

You will also be able to enjoy a silent auction featuring Niagara artists, wines & woodcrafts.

Tickets are only $40 per person.
