An Evening with Madeleine Thien

Wednesday, May 9, 2018

The Pelee Island Bird Observatory's program for the evening will feature Margaret Atwood's introduction of Madeleine Thien, Madeleine's talk, a gourmet dinner prepared by the chefs at Beach Grove in the club's stately dining room, and a live auction facilitated by Peter Hrastovec. Paul Vasey will be our animated M.C for the evening. The auction is always a lively affair and no two years feature the same items, but there is always something unique donated by Ms Atwood. At the end of the evening, there will be book signings by Madeleine and Margaret. Books will be available for purchase on-site from the University of Windsor Bookstore. All proceeds from the dinner and the auction go directly towards supporting Pelee Island Bird Observatory's research on migration 'monitoring and our education program.

Please join us at The Beach Grove Golf and Country Club on May 9th. Tickets are $150, and a portion of the ticket price is eligible for a tax deduction.

Reception is at 6 PM and dinner at 7 PM. There will be complimentary wine at each table. We are looking forward to seeing you there

Film Screening: Earth Seen from the Heart

Sunday, April 29, 2018

On Sunday April 29, 2018 at 4:30pm you can enjoy the film Earth: Seen from the Heart at Silver City Cinema.

Scientists, writers and artists join Hubert Reeves to sound a warning: biodiversity is under threat. While some humans are responsible for this crisis, others, in growing numbers, are tackling it head on and forging solutions.

In this documentary, dedicated to future generations, their common understanding that we ought to revisit our perception of earth and life in all its forms is a compelling call to action in the battle to preserve it!

Regular admission costs apply. This is not an event hosted by the Windsor Essex County Environment Committee.
