Dedicated to protecting and preserving
special places for future generations
Pender Islands Conservancy invites you
to its annual pot-luck
Come One, Come All
at the Parish Hall
Our pot-luck will be followed by a presentation by Dave Polster, plant ecologist, who specializes in ecosystem restoration.
Gone: Now What? Next Steps in the
Restoration of Sensitive Ecosystems?”
His talk will encourage those of us who have diligently removed patches of broom and are now wondering what to do with the empty spots. Dave has had an extensive career in restoration including streams, cliffs, and mining sites. Come and learn more about habitat restoration.
For all of you on South Pender who are battling broom’s nasty cousin gorse, Dave will have some advice, and of course, sympathy!
Even if you aren’t a member of PICA, you are welcome to attend. Come and join us for dinner and an exciting evening of ecology. Bring some food, an appetite, and your questions.
"Left unchecked, climate change will increase the likelihood of severe,
pervasive and irreversible impacts for people and ecosystems.”

PICA has added two doggy-pots to the Medicine Beach Nature Sanctuary, one near the parking lot, and the other on the trail from Aldridge Road. Please use them. There are also new signs marking the trails. Please help us protect this conservation covenant by staying on the marked trails.
