** The first Nature Moncton meeting of the new year will happen on January 21st and we will be periodically reminding of it because it will be “Member’s Night”, the chance for members to share short presentations on any subject of nature interest. If you have anything to share please advise president Gordon Rattray at gordonr@nbnet.nb.ca so that he can arrange the evening. The writeup as it appears on the website at www.naturemoncton.com under “Upcoming Events” is attached.

Nature Moncton January meeting
January 21, 2020 at 7:00 PM
Moncton Rotary Lodge (across from former Cabela’s)
Members Night!



Have you had an interesting encounter with nature in the past year?  Have you taken some good photos of birds, insects, animals or anything else in the various habitats of New Brunswick?  Have you taken a trip where you were able to experience aspects of nature different from what we have here?  The January Nature Moncton meeting belongs to members like you who wish to share their nature photos and experiences in 15 to 30 minute presentations.   It’s a special night when we get to hear from each other and perhaps learn some things from the everyday experiences of the nature enthusiasts who belong to the club.

Please advise President Gordon Rattray if you have a presentation to share at gordonr@nbnet.nb.ca or call Gordon at 874-6458, so we can line up the evening.

Nature Moncton is a very diverse group with an equal diversity of interests. Let’s share them on January 15, 2019!

As always, all are welcome Nature Moncton member or not.


** Brian Stone did an end of the year checkout at Mapleton Park. The very predominant MALLARD DUCK [Canard colvert] troupe was very contentedly enjoying the cracked corn that folks are now sharing with them. A MUSKRAT [Rat musqué] made a brief appearance scurrying across the ice surface, barely giving a chance for a photograph.
