11 am – 3 pm (bring your own lunch)

BRING THE ENTIRE FAMILY and join Laurel Bohart, Donna Collins and other Cortes Island Museum & Archives volunteers for this free, OUT-OF-DOORS event at Wild Cortes and the Linnaea Education Centre. Participants will walk together (wet and muddy) to identify and gather mosses. Once collected, the specimens will be used to build your own family mossarium!

• a 1-LITRE+ JAR with LID (some jars available if you can’t find one) NOTE: The opening of the jar needs to be large enough to fit a hand inside

All other materials will be provided, but if you have some wee shells, stones or sticks you would like to use, bring them.

Masks will only be required when participants go inside to view mosses magnified through the stereoscope in the EcoLab.

Donations are gratefully appreciated!

Registering in advance is preferred: email or call 250-935-6340 before 4 pm on Friday or Saturday, February 18/19.
