BC SPECIES AT RISK - DOWN THE RABBIT HOLE
Speaker: Fred Bunnell
A look at ecological and legislative reasons why BC has so many species at risk. Points are illustrated by looking at the fate of the first four species legally designated as endangered in the province (in 1980). The rabbit hole lurks because in the Wonderland of BC these are still the only species legally designated as endangered.

KLEE WYCK JOURNAL
Speaker: Lou McKee
Lou has written and illustrated a book, Klee Wyck Journal. She and her husband David are ocean kayakers who, after many years, claimed a wilderness beach on the west coast of Vancouver Island. After being caught in heavy rains with tarps and tents, they decided they wanted better shelter and built a cabin, the participants being family and friends, and it took about 15 summer vacations to complete. During this time, she kept a journal and illustrated the nature around her every day. Besides the drawings and observances, the program also tells the story of the community of people and wild animals, the building of the cabin, food they eat, general musings, adventures in their kayaks, etc. They will present a power point, do readings from the book, encourage audience discussion, have books to sell, original art from the book, and a copy of the original journal.
