The milkweed plant is now well-known for its importance to Monarch butterflies. But it was not long ago that it was known as a pest plant and noxious weed. We will take a detailed look at this actually beautiful wildflower in our area, and consider recent efforts to encourage its introduction and expansion in Ontario as a grassland prairie meadow plant species. Club members research and presentation.

Mining of rock, ore and precious stones is an activity well known to Canadians. Infact it is responsible for much of our historical and contemporary wealth. Much of this activity occurs in Canada but also and increasingly in other countries in the world by Canadian Mining companies. This meeting will be a broad brush look at mining and practices and what impact this activity has on natural ecosystems, wildlife, water and other things here in Canada and abroad. Club members research and presentation.
