Naturalists taking a closer look at local plants

Learn about local jewels of nature with the Cowichan Valley Naturalists Monday, April 7. Starting at 9:30 a.m. at the Freshwater Ecocentre (1080 Wharncliffe Rd.) in Duncan the Naturalists’ coffeehouse will enjoy a presentation called Quw’utsun Sp’eq’um – Flowers in the Cowichan Valley.

Genevieve Singleton, a local nature interpreter and Philomena Williams, a Cowichan Tribes elder, will share plant names, photos, fun facts and stories about local plants.

Williams has a wide knowledge of traditional practices and is an Elder in Residence at Vancouver Island University, said naturalists Steve and Gail Mitchell.

“Genevieve has a lifetime of experience having fun in the outdoors and especially enjoys sharing her love of flowers with everyone,” they said.
