The Botany Section gives members the opportunity to learn more about the flora of BC through evening programs and nature walks and hikes. Please contact Ron Long for more information.

Evening Programs

The Botany section presents a series of free evening programs with a botanical focus (plants and fungi) for Nature Vancouver members and the general public. We’re looking to build connections and welcome new members with snacks and a featured herbal tea, plus the opportunity to bring photos of your ‘mystery’ plants and get some help identifying them. You can also learn more about our “plant of the month” or watch a Plant ID for Beginners PowerPoint.

For more information and suggestions for future presentations please contact the Program Coordinator Ron Long by email or phone at 604-469-1651.

WHEN: Third Thursday of each month, from September through April (except December) at 7:30 p.m (refreshments at 7:00 p.m.)

WHERE: Unitarian Centre at 949 West 49th Avenue (at Oak Street), Vancouver.

Field Trips

From spring to fall Nature Vancouver members lead many field trips to explore the surrounding natural areas.  While almost any trip offers participants a chance to view native flowers, berries and trees, some trips will be more botanically focused than others.  At present, we don’t have a shorthand way of identifying ‘Botany’ field trips, but a quick read of the trip description will help you decide.  Come to our evening programs or contact us and let us know what field trips you’d like to see.
