Nature Book Club

2016.09.07 High Park Nature Centre-051

Do you love reading about the natural world and talking with others about your nature passion?! If yes, join our Nature Book Club for adults!

Each month, a theme will be selected and a list of suggested book titles will be sent to book club participants. Participants will then meet at the Nature Centre once per month to share and discuss a book of their choosing (related to the theme) with the group. For some meetings, participants may also read and discuss the same book. Group discussions will be guided by a facilitator. Snacks and light refreshments will be provided!

The club will meet 9 times from January to November (except for July and August). Meetings will generally fall on the last Tuesday of the month from 6:30 PM to 8:30 PM. Meeting dates for 2017 are Jan 31, Feb 28, Mar 28, Apr 25, May 30, Jun 27, Sept 26, Oct 24 and Nov 28.

The cost for all 9 sessions is $15 for Nature Centre volunteers and seniors (65 years +) or $30 for individuals (19 to 64 years old). This is paid as a ‘Friends of the High Park Nature Centre‘ membership fee.
