July 7-11 is Plant Week as part of the Museum’s Summer Programs!
For Plant Week, we are featuring a wild berry tart tutorial led by our Heritage Interpreters, which you can watch here.
Kids will love this colouring page that’s all about plants!
Tour the Museum’s Native Plant Garden with this scavenger hunt!
Or, go tour the gardens at the Haig-Brown House!
We’re also highlighting two great videos about our community’s natural heritage. From the Museum’s Living History series, Battle of the Beaver Lodge Lands: Gift and Compromise , a 40 minute film about the Beaver Lodge Lands experimental forest, and the struggles that brought it into existence.
The second video is part of the Greenways Land Trust’s “Spotlight on Nature Series.” In this edition, Ecosystem Biologist Carl Morrison explains the beaver’s role in the ecosystems of the Beaver Lodge Lands.
You can also check out their Top 10 invasive species in Campbell River brochure to take with you on your next hike, and watch their workshop on Planting a Winter Garden to keep your green thumb busy all year long.
