TERRY McINTOSH, Ph.D. is a botanist with over 30 years of experience in public education, ecological consulting, and scientific research. He has recently undertaken a number of bryophyte and ecosystem surveys, and has produced reports for both provincial and federal agencies (CDC and COSEWIC). He is familiar with plants and vegetation communities across British Columbia, in particular interior shrub-grasslands and coastal Garry oak ecosystems. He frequently participates in rare plant inventories, most recently on Salt Spring Island, the south Okanagan Valley, and along the Sunshine Coast.

Terry has spent many of the last autumns searching the edges of rivers and lakes for late season plants...plants that are often hidden under water until mid to late summer and which can only be accounted for once the edges of water bodies dry down. Numerous provincially At Risk plants are restricted to these habitats. Terry will show images of many of these plants, describe their unique life strategies and habitats, and encourage you to get out so that you can see for yourself that striking late season world
