NATURE MONCTON FEBRUARY MEETING

VIRTUAL MEETING

 

Presenter: Mike Holland, Minister of Natural Resources and Energy Development

Protected Areas of New Brunswick”

In October 2019, the government of NB announced it would more than double the amount of conserved land in the province in the next 14 months bringing the total up to 10%. That would translate into the creation of a good number of new Protected Natural Areas (PNA) in which conservation is the focus. The events of 2020 delayed the project a bit, as well as many other things, but the province is still on track to fulfill this commitment and has put forward a consultation process to help it along. For naturalists this should be of great interest and that is why we thought it would be good to have someone come and give us a talk on the subject. And who better to do that than Mike Holland the minister of the Department of Natural Resources and Energy Development. Minister Holland is a fervent outdoorsman himself and it should be of great interest to all to hear how he sees the future of conservation in our beautiful province.

 

This presentation will be virtual with anyone anywhere welcome to join. The link to the presentation will be published on the Nature Moncton BlogSpot for a few days before the presentation.
