Andy MacKinnon, co-author of the popular field guide Coastal Plants of British Columbia, will be the guest speaker for an evening hosted by NALT’s Edible Wild Plants Project on Thursday, March 4, 2010, in the Lounge of the Beban Park Recreation Centre, 2300 Bowen Road, Nanaimo. The focus of Andy’s one-hour presentation will be the harvest and use of edible wild plants on Vancouver Island. To liven things up a bit, he plans to add a bit of information about Sasquatch Ethnobotany.
Doors will be open at 6:30 pm, with information displays and light refreshments. The program will begin at 7:00 pm. Admission is free; donations appreciated. NALT hopes to see you there. For more information, contact the Nanaimo and Area Land Trust at 250-714-1990.
