Your Brain on Nature- guest speaker!

Hey McGill!

1118114515Don’t miss a great lecture with Dr. Alan C. Logan, the naturopathic doctor and well-published scientific author, who co-wrote with physician Dr. Eva Selhub, the new book Your Brain On Nature: The Science of Nature’s Influence on Your Health, Happiness, and Vitality. Scientific studies have shown that natural environments can have remarkable benefits for human health. Natural environments are more likely to promote positive emotions; and viewing and walking in nature have been associated with heightened physical and mental energy. Nature has also been found to have a positive impact on children who have been diagnosed with impulsivity, hyperactivity, and attention deficit disorder. A powerful wake-up call for our tech-immersed society, Dr. Alan C. Logan will guide us through the fascinating effects that exposure to nature can have on the brain.

The Great Canadian Shoreline Cleanup

Hello there folks!

We haven’t disappeared yet- in fact, you’re just in time for our first event of the 2012-2013 year!

This September 22nd, join us and the Great Canadian Shoreline Cleanup to clean up Parc Wilcox in Montreal’s Verdun neighborhood!

With humble beginnings in 1994 with the Vancouver Aquarium, The Great Canadian Shoreline Cleanup has since become an official national program for a decade, with thousands of volunteers offering their time to help clean up local communities. Since then, they’ve partnered with WWF Canada to become a real force in the International Coastal Cleanup movement in Canada.

Check out their Facebook page here, or simply join The Conservationists at Roddick Gates at 10am. You can even register here, and check out the details! Bring gloves and other supplies if you want to stay fresh and clean! We’ll be heading out together to the destination via Metro.
