In keeping with the YNC's aim to learn about and explore nearby nature, this year's AGM was held at the Great Blue Heron Nature Reserve and we spent much more time outdoors than in! A huge thank you to the Eastern Fraser Valley YNC members who delivered a presentation on Bats and then took us on an interpretive walk to see a number of the bat boxes they recently installed as part of the YNC small stewardship grants project. Cynthia Berg, the EFV YNC Club Volunteer Leader not only arranged for all our meeting needs and was a wonderful hostess but also led us on a walk to see the second largest heronry in BC. We were joined by Ian Davidson of Nature Canada (he's the one strolling with YNC founder and Honorary President, Daphne Solecki), a number of YN Board, members and staff- we even had one departing Board member skype in from Guatemala!
Of course we did accomplish the business part of the meeting as well:
Annual Report 2012 Financial Statements New Board of Directors
Join us for a special treat as we hold our Annual General Meeting meeting at the Great Blue Heron Nature Reserve and look at some of the stewardship projects that the YNC Eastern Fraser Valley Club has done with volunteer leader Cynthia Berg and club members as tour guides!
Cynthia will then lead us on a walk to the Heron Colony to look at the newly hatched chicks!

Yesterday more than 30 young naturalists learned about watersheds and stream stewardship during a special Stream of Dreams Explorer Day at the YNC offices in North Vancouver. Then parents and children celebrated what they learned about the importance of healthy watersheds to all creatures -- including salmon by painting colourful wooden dream fish. Later the dream fish were installed above a dry river rock stream bed volunteers had constructed in the native plant garden in front of the Parks Heritage Centre (YNC office) two weeks ago. Thank you to Gail Ross and Louise Towell from the Stream of Dreams Society, BC Parks, BC Nature and the Elders Council for Parks for helping this project move swimmingly along;)
