The Williams Lake Field Naturalists will hold their fall social and pot-luck supper on Friday, Oct. 18 starting at 6 p.m. at the Scout Island Nature Centre.
Members and non-members are welcome to attend.
Bring a dish to share and be ready to enjoy good conversation and a short armchair trip to Spain.
Following the dinner new members Paula Laita and Jon Gaztelumendi from Basque Country in Northern Spain will share their experiences travelling in Spain.
Their presentation about birding in Spain is called Transport to Spain: A Paradise for Birders and Wildlife Enthusiasts.
Spain has a wide range of ecosystems and landscapes due to its variation in the local geography and topography and the diverse climates present in many regions.
The proximity of the different habitats, especially in migration corridors, leads to a rich mixture of bird species.
The Williams Lake Field Naturalists operate Scout Island Nature Centre.
This primarily volunteer work includes the creation and maintenance of trails and wildlife habitat.
They also sponsor nature education programs, bring in excellent natural history speakers, lead field trips to amazing local destinations do research and monitoring in the natural environment. They also advocate for nature.
