From and For Al Friends of Wetlands in Niagara
Posted May 25th, 2016 on Niagara At Large
(A Brief Foreword Note from Niagara At Large publisher Doug Draper – Some very good friends of what are left of our wetlands and wildlife places in Niagara, Ontario, and from saving them from Niagara Peninsula Conservation Authority-hatched biodiversity off-setting schemes and bulldozers asked that the following invite be circulated as widely as possible.
Niagara At Large is pleased to assist in circulating this invitation.)
When: Saturday, May 28th, noon-6pm, Sunday, May 29th, noon to 7pm
Where: Mahtay Cafe on 241 St Paul Street in downtown St Catharines and in the streets
Come and join us for two days of art, theatre, education, community, and celebration of Niagara Wetlands!
In light of the current controversy surrounding Ramsey Road Forest*(and biodiversity off-setting and the Thundering Waters/Paradise community project in Niagara Falls), a celebration of the beauty of nature and the solidarity of community is in order so that we can remind ourselves of all of the good that we can accomplish when we work together.
We invite you to bring your talents. Just show up with your stuff and we will share the space!
