It is once again time for Bowen Nature Club’s AGM and it’s annual keynote presentation. This year’s event will be held Saturday, February 22nd at the home of Lynn and Everhard Van Lidth de Jude. The address is 602 Collins Lane.The meeting and always delicious potluck (yes please bring along a dish to share) starts at 5:30 with the keynote presentation starting at about 7:00pm.
This event is open to all Bowen Islanders and for those that are interested in Bowen’s Nature Club (BNC) you will have a chance to meet many of the members and learn about the events and outings being planned for the upcoming year.
This year’s keynote talk will be given by Tessa Danelesko, Coordinator of the BC Cetaceans Sightings Network, a project that collects information on opportunistic sightings of whales, dolphins, porpoises and sea turtles from the coast of B.C.
If you’ve seen the misty blow of a whale or the fin of a dolphin recently the BC Ceatacean Sightings Network wants to know and you can find out why by attending this presentation. Discover what whales, dolphins, porpoises, and sea turtles inhabit B.C. waters. Find out which species are most commonly seen around Bowen Island. Learn a bit about their unique histories and the threats that they face. Learn how you, as a coastal citizen, can become a citizen scientist by participating in marine conservancy and research through the Sightings Network. Get ready to be informed, connected and inspired.
This presentation is sponsored by the Vancouver Aquarium Cetacean Research Program. We hope that the event will encourage you to join BNC. The Bowen Nature Club is dedicated to the enjoyment, understanding, and preservation of Bowen Island’s diversity both on land and in the surrounding oceans.
