Silverback Sojourn: April 25, 1-3PM

Join some of Bowen Island’s nature “Silverbacks” (long time Island residents) to explore the tried and true route from the Old General Store (Library) toward Killarney Lake and back. We will look at our route with new “lenses” with, Will Husby (insects and bugs), Everhard Van Lidth de Jeude (forests) Claudia Schaefer (plants) and DG
Blair (streams and wetlands) leading the way. We had a lot of fun last year with this outing and this year the journey will continue!

Meet the naturalists at the Old General Store to start a leisurely walk of discovery and discussion as we head toward Killarney Lake.
