This year Bowen Nature Club once again had a booth at Bowfest! We featured multisensory games such as “Can you identify this tree?” and “Whose paw is this anyway?” as well as a full-colour marine animal quiz. The public was invited to examine a number of local animal skulls and encouraged to bring their own artifacts for identification. The table was manned by club members, including naturalists like Bowen’s Ecoreserve Warden Alan Whitehead and entomologist Will Husby, who were challenged to answer all manner of nature-related questions from the public.

Tucked away in the Kane Valley near Merritt, BC, secluded Shea Lake provides recreational opportunities for family camping and nature exploring. This past July 6 & 7, Bowen Nature Club members Jonah, Ezra, DG, Bruce, Lyn, Everhard, Melissa and James spent time discovering the local flora and fauna of the area. All photos by Bruce Steele.
