Volunteer Appreciation and BioBlitz Wrap Up Events

What a year 2021 has been! We'd like to give a very special thank you to you, our volunteers, for continuously ensuring that our efforts in conservation, protection, and restoration are successful! 

To celebrate and recognize all of your hard work, on Wednesday, September 29, 2021, we are hosting our annual Volunteer Appreciation event at Westminster Ponds! We'll also be holding the awards ceremony for the Out for the Count: BioBlitz Fundraiser later in the evening.

This event will be held outdoors at the Westminster Ponds Centre. A BBQ dinner will be provided followed by the live musical talents of Ian Bell, the Out for the Count awards ceremony, and Bake Vibes ice cream for dessert! 

It is highly recommended to bring your own lawn chair for sitting and some lawn games for some outdoor fun. Outdoor lighting will be provided as the sun begins to set so that we can keep the party going! If you happen to have any portable outdoor lighting available, we would greatly appreciate it if you brought it along with you.
