|When we hike among the cedars at Goldstream Park, our minds are more on botany than on zoology. The majestic trees, however, are direct products of the salmon stream running through the park. |
Professor Tom Reichen, a popular teacher/researcher at the University of Victoria and our next guest (Friday, February 15) at the Metchosin Talk and Walk series, will tell us about “The Salmon Forest.” See poster below.
There will not be a walk on the Saturday following Tom’s talk.
Keep Friday, March 8, open on your calendar. You’ll want to hear our nearest selkie, Amanda Swinimer of Dakini Tidal Wilds, talk about seaweeds. See the Talk and Walk web page for more information on upcoming talks.
Welcome to the Metchosin Talk and Walk website.
Until the fall of 2018, the Talk and Walks (102 of them over a twelve-year period) were organized by Moralea Milne. Since then, the Metchosin Biodiversity Project, which Moralea helped to start and which runs the Metchosin BioBlitzes and MycoBlitzes, has been organizing the Talk and Walk series.
