We hold meetings most Thursday evenings with a lecture and discussion. We also host frequent field trips for members to get out into Nature and learn more about this wonderful world we live in.
Members of Nature Vancouver have been working for more than 100 years to promote the enjoyment of nature, to educate ourselves and others about the natural world and to preserve and protect natural areas in the vicinity of Vancouver.
Presentation by Alice Purdey
You wouldn’t normally expect to find two artificial hips, one artificial eye, irritable bowel syndrome, leukemia in remission, Alzheimer’s Disease and wonky knees in an expedition team heading to the remote high arctic. However, under the inspirational leadership of Chris Cooper, a team of seven seniors, aged 64 to 74, did just that – for 30 days. Totally self-sufficient and self-propelled, they encountered polar bears and muskoxen, were amazed that life could survive in the Arctic’s vast barrens, were awed by the stark beauty. ~ And they walked on water and built their own airstrip for pickup.
