  • Thu, February 18, 2016
  • 2:00 PM
  • Mahone Bay Centre, 45 School Street, Mahone Bay NS

Brooke Nodding will discuss in detail the work of the Bluenose Coastal Action Foundation, a community-based charitable organization working in the South Shore region of NS. The organization was founded in December 1993 and for years was a small entity working only in Mahone Bay and Lunenburg. Brooke will highlight projects and successful achievements by Coastal Action over the years since its inception and how under her direction the organization has grown to become a recognized leader in environmental and conservation programs. Brooke is a graduate of Acadia University with a BScH in Environmental Science. She has spent time with both Environment Canada (National Office of Pollution Prevention, Hull, QC) and Fisheries and Oceans Canada (Habitat Management Division, Dartmouth, NS) before accepting her position as Executive Director of Coastal Action in May 2001. Her background is in fluvial dynamics, conservation management planning, and community-based stewardship initiatives. She grew up in Digby, NS, where her parents and one sister still reside. Brooke now lives in Lunenburg, Back Centre to be exact, with her husband, Jeff, daughter, Morgan, and two golden retrievers, Max and Talisker. Outside of work, outdoor recreational pursuits and sports play a large role in the lives of the entire Nodding family; in fact, Brooke still enjoys playing basketball in a women’s recreation league in New Germany. Brooke is also active in the community acting as a volunteer Girl Guide leader (Lunenburg Sparks) as well as a Sunday school teacher at St. John’s Anglican Church. 

The Mahone Bay Centre welcomes you to come and hear her speak about the ins and outs of running an environmental non-profit on the South Shore. This is a free event and there is no pre-registration required. For more information please call the Mahone Bay Centre (902) 624-0890.
