Thanks to everyone who attended the 2015 Annual General Meeting on June 24th at the new Central Library in Halifax.

It was inspiring to watch the scholarship winner’s video and to hear him speak on what he learned about Sable Island, how he made the video, and why he thinks it’s important to respect our environment. Congratulations to Cameron Penny from Cape Breton, and thanks to his Dad for bringing him to the meeting. You’ll hear more about Cameron soon on our website.
