Nature Explorations at Yellow Point Lodge

Part of: Nature Explorations

Course description

“The leaders, the laughter, the environment: this has been one of the most enriching weeks of my life.”
– Past participant

In spring, the world is alive—the meadow of sea blush and camas; the mink, otter, hummingbirds, eagles and blue herons are pursuing their springtime agendas; the forests are fresh and green; the sea is alive with birds and sea life. Join us for some leisurely days of learning, explorations and delicious meals at the legendary Yellow Point Lodge. Presenters may include biologists Marc Bell, David Denning, Darren and Claudia Copley, and pianist Bruce Vogt. There will be some early morning birding, and in the evenings, we’ll call owls, stargaze, enjoy a sing-along and watch computer and microscope videos of the day’s samplings of nature. Deborah LeFrank’s workshop may inspire you to discover nature journalling and sketch notes as you collect memories and experience nature’s wonders. We’ll also make an inspiring visit to Wildwood, the late Merve Wilkinson’s selective forestry acreage. This is a unique opportunity to recharge and relish in the spring concert of nature. Come on your own, plan a reunion or bring your walking group. You can choose double accommodation in the lodge or modern cabins with fireplaces and electric heat. A limited number of single rooms are available at an extra cost of $150 plus $7.50 GST.
