Bruce Whittington, author, naturalist, and founder of the Habitat Acquisition Trust, is returning to Victoria for October’s Birders’ Night. Bruce’s talk will focus on how birds negotiate the thin edge to survival on the western edge of our continent, and on how many species are sadly ‘on the edge’ in other ways.
We meet in Room 159 of the Fraser Building, UVic at 7:30 p.m. Come early to socialize! Presentation begins after VNHS announcements and coffee. Everyone is welcome. Note: UVic parking is $3.
