As a ‘Friends of’ group working with Parks Canada, we focus on developing and delivering education programs, promoting research, and giving voice and a means of action to the world-wide community of those who are passionate about this special place. As one means to meet these objectives we, in collaboration with Dalhousie University’s School for Resource and Environmental Studies and the Nova Scotian Institute of Science, organized and held a very successful conference in May 2015 with 30 presentations on a variety of topics focusing on the history, science and management of Sable Island.
The Friends of Sable Island Society invites you to join our membership to help protect and preserve Sable Island for generations to come. As a valued member you will:
• Be supporting the Friend’s programs such as our annual scholarship, website, future conferences, and public lectures;
• Have opportunities to contribute to Sable Island as a volunteer or participant in activities;
• Receive notice of special events via email and an annual newsletter; and,
• Have voting privileges at our Annual General Meeting and be eligible to be nominated and elected to serve on our Board of Directors.
There are two membership options available: an annual membership for $20 and a lifetime membership for $100. Please also consider a gift membership for your friends and family, and of course as a non-profit organization, donations are always welcome. Your support for Sable Island and our work is greatly appreciated.
