April Explorer Day

It's glorious outside, and we are thinking that Margaret Atwood is right, "In the spring, at the end of the day, you should smell like dirt", so we've planned for a curiosity hike exploring the fascinating world of Mosses and Lichens, on April 14 from 1-3:00 p.m. This wonderful outing was arranged with Dr. Terry McIntosh last autumn via satellite connection in the Yukon where he was conducting research. He is keen to meet with us for a walk-and-talk, having already heard about our wonderful members - yes, you are known :). 
Please note that the location is not confirmedTerry is coming from Vancouver to scout the best location. We will send notice as soon as possible. It looks like it will be Little Mountain or a Cultus Lake Trail. 
Chilliwack Field Naturalists Pollinator Planting
Our long-time supporters and the local naturalist club for adults, the Chilliwack Field Naturalists, have invited our group to a stewardship Pollinator Planting on Saturday, April 7, at 10:30 a.m. at Camp River Wildlife Area. Pizza and drinks will be provided. Please let us know if you plan to attend, so they know how much pizza to order.
Critterscaping Update
A giant thank you to all the hard-working volunteers who helped at our Critterscaping stewardship project at the Cheam Lake Wetlands. We are continuously inspired by all of you! In case you missed it, The Progress did a video piece on our project, and for many of you who wanted to make it and couldn't, we'll be doing follow-ups a few times over the summer to make sure our plants are thriving.
Poetry Notice
Lastly, Barbara Nickel wrote about our poetry session on her blog if you would like to take a peek. She shared with us that her work with our group was a highlight of her year!
 
Cheers,
Laurie, Mairi, & Kevin
