Event Description

Meet in the courtyard in front of the Roundhouse Community Centre at 1:00 PM. This is at the centre of the Roundhouse complex.

False Creek has seen a lot of changes in the last hundred and fifty years - going from a secluded inland waterway full of sealife and surrounded by forest to industrial log milling operations to heavily populated global village.

Join Pamela to walk from the Roundhouse Community Centre on the North Shore of False Creek to Habitat Island in SE False Creek to discuss the "back to nature" changes happening in False Creek today and reflect on their present value to society. From there participants can take the ferry back to Yaletown.

Pamela Zevit is a Registered Professional Biologist in BC and the Principal for Adamah Consultants. Her focus is on biodiversity conservation, environmental literacy and landscape ecology. She has worked for many years locally, regionally and transboundary to engage decison makers and citizens on conservation issues.

She is very interested in reconciling the conflicts between human and non-human resource needs and improving trust between society and science practioners.
