FOCI - Helen
Do you long for a deeper connection with nature? Friends of Cortes Island invites you to join renowned ornithologist, author, film-maker and artist Dr Rob Butler for a wonderful afternoon of stories and film on building a Nature Culture.

Sat Oct 5 2-3.30pm Mansons Hall. Doors open 1.30pm.

Rob will open with a short talk about a new vision and relationship with nature, Nature Culture, that draws on the latest research into health and well-being benefits, describes an emerging market for entrepreneurs, and steps to build a sustainable culture.

He will follow with a preview of his latest film, due to air on Knowledge Network, called RETURNING. Co-produced with internationally acclaimed film-maker Mike McKinlay, RETURNING is about a journey they took in search of nature infused culture in the Salish Sea.

Cost: $10 at the door, $5 for FOCI members (FOCI memberships available at the door)

Delicious refreshments available. Stay on to enjoy refreshments and chance to meet Rob and ask him about his fascinating work.
