Additional Information for Members

Last year, we were fortunate to be able to award additional funds to students with a very generous donation from John Coope. This year, we encourage all of our members to think of our future naturalists and scientists who are studying at this difficult time and to consider donating to our Nature Vancouver education fund. To donate go to DONATIONS or send a cheque payable to Nature Vancouver, Attn: Treasurer (with Nature Vancouver Scholarship noted on the memo line of the cheque). Our mailing address is: PO Box 3021, Stn. Terminal, Vancouver BC V6B 3X5.

Nature Vancouver is currently seeking additional members to be involved with the scholarship committee. If you are interested in participating in this committee, please contact Laura Cottle <laura@naturevancouver.ca>.
