Constance Bay Biothon

August 2014 - August 2015

The OFNC's Conservation Committee is pleased to launch an ambitious new initiative at Constance Bay; the first of a series of planned annual "Biothons" at significant natural areas in the Ottawa region.

All OFNC activities - the excursions and meetings, the publications, the bird count, the Macoun Club, etc. - depend on the continued existence of a natural environment where the astonishing happenings we call "nature" can continue to happen. The Conservation Committee's job is to be alert to human influences that are damaging to the natural environment and to advise OFNC members and the executive about what actions we can take, both as individuals and collectively.
