Biosphere Association’s 2020 Fundraising Calendar Available
Renowned photographer Ethan Meleg has partnered with the BPBA to produce a beautiful 2020 calendar – available now. (hyperlink here to order page). All proceeds from calendar sales will be used on Biosphere Association programs.
Calendars are being sold at a dozen supporting retailers from Tobermory down the length of the Bruce Peninsula to Owen Sound. They are available while supplies last in Tobermory at North Point and Readers Haven, in Ferndale at the Ferndale Drive In, in Lions Head at Molly’s Garden in Thyme, Home Hardware, Aunt Donkeys Toy Store, Foodland and the IDA Pharmacy. Near Wiarton, pick one up at Solways on highway 6 or the Water View Resort on Grey Rd 1. Foto Art In Owen Sound also has calendars.
Asked about working with the BPBA for 2020, Ethan commented that “the Biosphere Association does hands-on work to protect peninsula ecosystems. They plant trees along streams, replant forests, remove invasive phragmites from wetlands and shorelines, monitor water quality and forest health, and they offer dark sky activities to inspire an appreciation of the star-filled skies we look up at”.
Ethan remarked that he approached BPBA about the calendar fundraiser for all of the above reasons. “ They're a hard-working group and they do important things to protect this amazing area. They're worth supporting or joining as a volunteer. “
A number of the striking photos in the calendar reflect the fragility of the bio diversity that draw people to the Bruce.
The Biosphere Association is deeply appreciative of Ethan’s collaboration and of the Tobermory Press in helping produce the calendar. Get a few soon to get your holiday shopping started!
