Hello everyone!

This year the Nova Scotia Environmental Network (NSEN) will be co-hosting
the Annual Gathering with the Atlantic Chapter of the Sierra Club of Canada
and Pictou County Watershed Coalition (PCWC).

The theme for this year's gathering is "Water, Woods, Work. Getting out what
we put in!" 

We'll be gathering in Scotsburn, Pictou County, Nova Scotia at the beautiful
Stonehame Lodge, on Friday, September 10 to Sunday, September 12, to learn
about environmental issues, rejuvenate ourselves and prepare for another
year of organizing around environmental issues in Nova Scotia!
