Event Description

"Earthwalks Vancouver" July/August/September 2013

Back by popular demand! False Creek Watershed Society has once again partnered with Village Vancouver to offer a series of “Earth Walks”.

We live in the city of Vancouver with almost a million other residents. We are blessed to be surrounded by mountains, forests, oceans and rivers. But how well do we know about nature in our own backyard? The Earth and the natural world are present everywhere – from discussions around False Creek to our last wild salmon stream to the farm flats of Southlands and even as nature applies to human economic theory!

Please join us for this exciting series of walks this summer and fall. The leaders are amazingly knowledgeable in their specialty - so come along to listen to their words, connect with the land and ask lots of questions!
