Messy Church

Christ Lutheran Church, 463 High­land Rd., is hold­ing a Messy Church to­day from 5:30 un­til 7 p.m. Paint some Christ­mas or­na­ments, do some cookie dec­o­rat­ing and en­joy a de­li­cious meal, fun and fel­low­ship -- an op­por­tu­nity for fam­i­lies and kids of all ages (adults too) to spend time in a re­laxed and fun at­mos­phere.

Ev­ery­one is wel­come. Call 705 745-0841 for fur­ther in­for­ma­tion.

Nat­u­ral­ists

The Pe­ter­bor­ough Field Nat­u­ral­ists (PFN) meet Wed­nes­day at 7:30 p.m. at the Camp Kawartha En­vi­ron­ment Cen­tre, 2505 Pi­o­neer Rd. Guest speaker Arnold Zageris, one of this coun­try's pre-em­i­nent land­scape pho­tog­ra­phers, will dis­cuss his re­cent book of pho­tog­ra­phy en­ti­tled Antarc­tica.

"From the del­i­cate tin­gling sights of tiny ice crystals, to the majesty of tow­er­ing peaks and the fe­roc­ity of re­lent­less storms, Antarc­tica an­i­mates, in­spires and ul­ti­mately hum­bles," says Zageris.

Equipped with a 35mm dig­i­tal cam­era and an old 4x5 view cam­era, Zageris trav­elled Antarc­tica for over thir­teen years. His pho­to­graphs can be found at the Na­tional Gallery of Canada and in pri­vate gal­leries across North Amer­ica. Also, the PFN’s tra­di­tional Grey Cup af­ter­noon trip to Rice Lake takes place Sun­day, Nov. 25. The trip will last un­til the late af­ter­noon, but CFL fans will be home in time for the Grey Cup game!

Led by Martin Parker, the group will ex­plore sites along the north­west­ern shore of the lake look­ing for the later mi­grat­ing ducks and other birds. High­lights will be the rafts of ducks rid­ing the waves and the scenic vis­tas over­look­ing the lake.

To par­tic­i­pate, meet out­side Tim Hor­ton’s at the Cana­dian Tire/Sobeys Plaza, Lans­downe St. W. at 1 p.m. to car­pool. Bring binoc­u­lars, a tele­scope if you have one, and dress suit­able for the weather.

New mem­bers are wel­come. For fur­ther in­for­ma­tion visit pe­ter­bor­ough­na­ture.org/
