The Manitoba Nature Summit Inc.’s Annual General Meeting for 2016, will be held on Wednesday, March 22nd at 7:00 pm. The meeting will be held at the campfire near the shelter at the St. Vital Park Duck Pond.
The campfire will be started around 6 and we’ll have hot dogs, buns, and hot chocolate. Bonus points if you bring your own reusable plate and mug.
The meeting will be longer than it normally is as we’ve got things to vote on. If it’s too blowy out to hold papers we’ll move into the shelter.
Bring your family!
Join us for a fun night of teambuilding and Trivia on May 13th, 2017 as a fundraiser for Manitoba Nature Summit events.
It will be held at the St.James Legion (1755 Portage Ave) ( Don’t be confused by the other Legion that is close by…).
Doors open at 6:00. Trivia starts at 7:00 sharp!
Tickets are available at the door for $10/person but if you’d like to reserve a table (max 10 per table) so you won’t be disappointed email us at manitobanaturesummit at gmail.com with the names of the people at your table. You can register as a team or as an individual and we will find you a team.
There is a cash bar and you can bring your own snacks.
Bring some cash for the 50/50 draw and so you can buy some Manitoba Nature Summit Swag!
We hope to see you there! it’s always a blast!

It was fabulous to see so many enthusiastic educators at the 2016 Nature Summit!
We hope you enjoyed your experience and would love to hear what it was like for you. If you did not have time to complete your paper evaluation before you left, please take the time to complete the online survey here.
Your feedback is very valuable to us and helps us make any necessary improvements when planning our next event. Thank-You!
Here’s a sneak peak of what you will find Kristy selling at the Swag table during the 2016 Manitoba Nature Summit so that you can plan accordingly:
Manitoba Nature Summit Journals
MNS Lunch bags
cute ceramic mugs with spoon!
This is the Kal Barteski script that will be on our new shirts and hoodies! Kal is an accomplished Winnipeg artist who was kind enough to donate her time to create this script for our new shirts! We are pretty excited about them. Thanks a bunch Kal!
We’ll likely be blowing out our old t-shirt stock because, frankly- no one wants to store them in their basement for another 2 years, so if you are missing any in your collection you are in luck!
I don’t have any prices for you right now but we mostly just cover the costs so prices will be reasonable.
Call Out for Resource Fair Participants
If you have a small business that sells Nature/Play related products, if you are part of a non-profit that does work that promotes outdoor education for children or you have a poster presentation that you think the Manitoba Nature Summit needs to see then you should consider participating in the 2016 Manitoba Nature Summit Resource Fair.
A table/display area can be rented for $30 or an equivalent donation to our silent auction. Non-profits/Academic poster presentations can access a table free of charge if they are unable to provide a donation.
The resource fair will run from 10:00 am to 4:30 pm on Saturday.
For more information or to register for the Resource Fair contact Ruth or Jamie.
