Allan Brooks Nature Centre August lineup changes made

Two events cancelled

Based on feedback from the community and scheduling conflicts, Allan Brooks Nature Centre will be cancelling two of the four events scheduled this season in August.

Specifically, the cancelled events include The Mushroom Method Aug. 14 and Outdoor Opera Aug. 21.

“Although disappointed by the conflicts and necessary cancellations, we are seeing great support for these events as part of our routine seasonal activity. What we’ve learned is the need to post the event calendar early in the year so people can coordinate along with their busy summer activities,” said Vicki Proulx, events and communications coordinator at Allan Brooks Nature Centre.

“We look forward to hosting these kinds of events next season and finding a more convenient time for them based on the interest of the community.”
