Victoria Natural History Society and the Ruby Lake Lagoon Society
Super fun events in Victoria and Sechelt with the naturalist groups who have always been a key part of keeping the knowledge of BC's biodiversity alive and transferring to next generations. Members/naturalists from both these socieities had great stories to share and who knew Cowan. It was great to have David Anderson our once Minister of Environment share his recollections of the role played in the first moratorium on tankers on the coast. Thanks to the volunteer members: the Copley's and James Miskelly in Victoria and Michael and Dale Jackson, Leanne, Anne, the two Johns and other staff at Ruby Lagoon for organizing and making such warm welcomes at each venue. It was also great to see young students and the older keepers of the knowledge mingling over tea and coffee as another generation takes up the challenges!
