      Hi Theresa,

      This event is a monthly meeting for the OFNC. We try to book an array of different speakers on different natural history subjects through the year.

      If you are interested in our programming, we would kindly ask that you consider joining the OFNC. We are a volunteer-run organization, and your membership helps support the many projects and initiatives we undertake to promote the appreciation and understanding of the natural world in the Ottawa area.
