We celebrate BC/World River’s Day by paying our respects to Canada’s official emblem and symbol of our nation’s sovereignty—Castor canadensis: the beaver. We may think they’re just cute (or a nuisance), but the fact is beavers sculpted our landscapes and provided flourishing habitat to myriad life forms; they are one of Nature’s keystone species. Hounded to near extinction at the end of the 19th century, they’re making a significant comeback and we’ll explore just why that’s so important.
UPDATE: The group is now full and Andrea is taking a wait list in case there are cancellations in future.
A writing group will start meeting every two weeks starting in September facilitated by Andrea Nicki, author of three prose poetry books, editor, and professor in ethical leadership at Fairleigh Dickinson University. In each meeting of 90 minutes the group will discuss short pieces of life writing or prose poetry on a topic, write individually about the topic, and then share writing with others (optional) in a spirit of mutual appreciation.
Topics will include self-love, relationships, family, genealogy, trauma, illness, loss, life transition, healing, fun and play, movement, dance, beauty, nature, pets and animals, social justice, spirituality and mystery. All genders and ages 19+ are welcome!
Registration is required: [email protected].
The meeting time of the group will be determined after taking a poll of registrants.
