Wild Cortes!!!!, Museum satellite exhibit at Linnaea Farm, 1255 Seaford Road, will be open on Saturday and Sunday, November 24 and 25, noon to 4 pm.

Laurel Bohart will talk about her Taxidermy, on Saturday, November 24, 1:30–2:30 pm.

Thanks to generous funding from BC Museums Association, Heritage BC and BC Canada 150, and partnerships with Friends of Cortes Island (FOCI), Children’s Forest, and Discovery Island Ecosystems Mapping (DIEM), you can now take a stroll on the wild side of Cortes Island to see specimens mounted by taxidermist Laurel Bohart—from a dragonfly to a giant hornet nest to Raven’s Relations to eagles to a baby beaver and seals. You can compare skulls, marvel at a Curiosity Cabinet, try on costumes of endangered species, peruse our in-house library, put a puzzle of Cortes watersheds together, get eye-to-eye with eagles and a heron and find out what’s raiding an oystercatcher’s nest!

Entrance is down the steps near Linnaea’s front door with a handicap entrance down the Library ramp. Admission is by donation.

See our website www.cortesmuseum.ca for more events organized by the Cortes Island Museum & Archives Society.

Our main gallery on 957 Beasley Road is open during winter on Friday and Saturday, noon to 4 pm.
