Celebrating a Century of NV Wilderness Camps – Speaker: Nigel Peck

Since 1918 the Vancouver Natural History Society, now Nature Vancouver area birders, botanists and naturalists have forayed into the BC backcountry for one and two week camps to study nature, enjoy our province’s gorgeous landscapes, and just enjoy company with fellow outdoor people. What started with boat, train and packhorse travel and roughing it has evolved into helicopter supported camps, gourmet food and high-tech solutions for comfortable backcountry camping which continues to this day. Come and see a retrospective of some of the initial camps along with photos of the current styles and locations of Nature Vancouver camps as an introduction to the finest way to visit BC’s backcountry. This retrospective will be presented by the chair of the Nature Vancouver camp committee, Nigel Peck.

There will be a social hour from 6:30 – 7:30 in the tradition of the the VNHS/Nature Vancouver pre & post camp meetings.  This is a chance to catch up with campers from the different years.  Continuing with the tradition, we invite you to bring finger food to complement the coffee, tea and juice that will be available.
 
Of course all Nature Vancouver members are invited, and we particularly would like to encourage everyone to bring non-Nature Vancouver family and friends who might be interested in the camps.
