Nature PEI is pleased to announce that we will be reconvening our monthly meetings at the Carriage House beginning on Oct. 6th as well as offering a fall workshop and field trip.  COVID-19 guidelines and restrictions will be in effect so things will look a little different, especially the need to pre-register for all events. Please note that numbers are limited and preference will be given to Nature PEI members. We will also accommodate groups in social bubbles/household units but ask that you indicate this at pre-registration so that we can maximize seating.  Other COVID-19 guidelines and restrictions can be found below.

Meeting starts at 7:30 pm at Beaconsfield, the Carriage House, corner of West and Kent Street, Charlottetown.  To address COVID-19 needs, pre-registration is essential. Contact Barbara Dylla ( to register. Please bring your face masks as they will be required at this event (also see guidelines below).

Carriage House COVID-19 Rules and Restrictions

Due to COVID-19 restrictions, the Carriage House seating is much more limited now (if a group is sitting with people from their bubble, we can have up to 37 people sitting in 2s, 3s & 4s). All participants must pre-register and advise whether they will be attending as an individual or as part of a household group so the seating can be set up properly. Participants must enter via the front door, provide their contact information and apply hand sanitizer which is supplied; respect the two-metre social distance rule; bring a face mask that covers the mouth and nose, and wear it until you they are seated and when moving about. When the presentation is ended, participants must follow instructions on queuing up to allow exit by the side door. General restrictions for entry are also in effect regarding health and travel status.
