Here are some presentations from our meetings that our presenters have graciously shared. We hope you enjoy them.
Meredith Watson, a UBC masters student, was our guest speaker at our fall meeting, October 28, 2023. She talked about the mysteries and magic of bogs in our environment. In urban centres, structures were built right on top of bogs so cannot be remediated. Her presentation wove a story on what was going on in the bogs under residential houses in Mount Pleasant area of Vancouver.
Richard Hebda, former Curator of Botany and Earth History Royal BC Museum, and president of BC Iris Society showed us the incredible variety and beauty of irises. We also learned how to divide and plant Irises.
Ian Lai, former Executive Director, Urban Bounty, presentation showed his recent trip to the Amazon where he found that the indigenous people are struggling with the same issues as here in Canada.
