December Nature Networking Party

Please reserve the late afternoon/early evening (4:00 – 9:00 p.m.) on Thursday, December 18 to drop in and meet up with your environmental friends (old and new) at the newly renovated Environmental Gathering Place (top floor of the old Mercy convent school by the Basilica).  Everyone interested in the environment and nature is invited to drop in.  Bring a friend.  Bring a treat or “finger-food” that doesn’t require plates or cutlery to share.  Coffee and tea provided.
