Friday, September 18, 2015 – Rotary Room, Cobourg Public Library. Gather for refreshments at 6:30 pm.
Speaker - Catherine Nasmith, President of Architectural Conservancy for Ontario (ACO).

Main Street as Old Growth Forest uses analogies from the environmental, conservation and ecology movements to describe the value of our rapidly disappearing Main Streets with regard to their types, states, complexity, diversity and other attributes.
Main Streets that are still the retail core of their communities (steady state) are compared to those in decline or rehabilitated through preservation.
Catherine Nasmith is a practicing architect; president of the ACO Toronto Branch; Jane Jacobs prize winner (2010) and publisher of Built Heritage News. She has been observing Main Streets since the 1980’s.
The event will be at no cost to members of WBFN.
Guests will pay $5.
