Journey Back to Nature: Strathcona Provincial Park History

Join us Wednesday, June 9 at 6:30pm via Zoom as Vancouver Island author and historian Catherine Marie Gilbert presents a pictorial talk based on her book, A Journey Back to Nature, the history of Strathcona Provincial Park, published by Heritage House Publishing this spring. Enjoy never before seen archival photos and a fascinating account of the century-long effort to define, access, preserve, develop, and exploit the uniquely beautiful Strathcona area of rugged wilderness in the centre of Vancouver Island. The book has been described by BC author and historian Barry Gough as A bold testament to a world nearly lost, here is an evocation of Nature’s fragility in the face of industrial and commercial onslaught. A moving, passionate and authoritative panorama.”
