April Meeting
Apr 3 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm

Our speaker for this month is TJ Watt , an award-winning nature and conservation photographer from Victoria, BC. He combines his passion for rainforest conservation with professional photography, TJ sheds light on BC’s endangered old-growth forests in an effort to help see them saved.  A self-described ‘big-tree hunter’, he can often be found driving rough backroads and exploring remote regions of Vancouver Island in search of the last old-growth giants. TJ is also a co-founder, campaigner, and photographer with the Ancient Forest Alliance, a non-profit organization that works to protect BC’s old-growth forests and ensure a sustainable second-growth forest industry.

TJ will present an overview of the ecology and politics of BC’s endangered old-growth growth forests and the role conservation photography plays in the fight to protect them. He will include photographs from across Vancouver Island and BC, including the spectacular Great Bear Rainforest.  Click here for TJ’s website.  Click here for the Ancient Forest Alliance.

We will show the slideshows from our field trip in Nanaimo, the texture assignment and our March favuorites.

May Meeting – Annual General
May 1 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm


Our Annual General Meeting night is on Wednesday May 1st.

Elections for our new management team will be held at this meeting. Kathy will offer her final message and we will hear from each of the management team. Our slideshows from the month of April will be run and then Kathhy will announce our photographer of the year and conduct the elections.

Remember that all positions are open, we are all volunteers on the board and we all welcome the opportunity for new members to join us and bring their new ideas.  Once the new team has been voted in,  announced and introduced we will have a social evening.

As a BC Society, we are required to review the rules under which we operate (check here). Take this opportunity to meet with the new group and discuss any changes that you think would offer improvements to any aspect of the club’s activities.

There will be coffee and tea at $1!
