We normally hold our monthly general meeting/speaker programs from October to April. The speaker programs are usually held on the first Wednesday of the month unless otherwise noted and start at 7:30 pm.
In the past, we have been holding these programs at the Royal Oak Middle School. But, this coming fall, our October, November & December programs will be held the Royal Oak Senior/Community Center which is located at 3500 Marais. We will let you know about the location of our speaker programs for the January-April 2020 time period later on this year.
There is a General Meeting of the Nature Society that takes place a few minutes before the speaker program commences.
These programs are usually slide shows focusing on various natural history topics. If you watch nature programs on PBS or the Discovery channel, our program is better because you can meet afterwards and ask the speakers questions. All speaker programs are free and open to everyone. Preregistration is not required.
