Comox Valley Naturalists Soc.
Comox Valley Naturalists Society presents Flower Power – A Naturalist’s View of Plants of Vancouver Island.
The regular monthly meeting of the Comox Valley Naturalists Society will be held April 17, 2011 at 7:00 pm at the Florence Filberg Centre, 411 Anderton Avenue, Courtenay. The speaker will be naturalist and interpreter Genevieve Singleton, who will speak about the plants of Vancouver Island.
Genevieve hails from the Cowichan Valley, and has been a naturalist and interpreter since the late 1960's. She has worked/volunteered for BC Parks for many years and runs an environmental consulting firm with her husband, Dave Polster. She has been sharing her passion for the outdoors, particularly her love of the creepy crawlies and plants with children and adults in many settings through the years.
“Flower Power!!...” illustrates very well her passion for plants and will include many interesting tidbits about ethnobotany, current uses, and folklore, and will be accompanied by Dave Polster’s photographs.

Please come and join us to become better informed, and to learn how you can help CVNS provide education and protection for B.C.’s natural environment.
