To help others learn about our local natural environment, we have run an annual successful speaker series most years since 2002. Our presentations have focused on a diverse array of subjects that tie into our local environment.
Our recent speaker series have included talks on:
•The story of our native fish with a local fish detective;
•Western toads at Lost Lake;
•Whistler wetland creatures and their role as indicator species; and
•Climate change – the background science and introduction of a local ongoing alpine monitoring project.
