UPDATE: This event has been postponed and will likely be rescheduled for sometime during the spring. If you are interested, please send us an email to be placed on a contact list for the future event.
NOTE: Open to ages 19+ only, please.
Come hangout at the Nature House and learn about the shocking, outrageous, and romantic ways of the plant and animal kingdoms by playing a risky animal game and hearing about some of our ecologists’ favourite frisky plants and animals. Beer available by donation.
Human courtship has its own twitterpated customs and rituals, many of which would look alien to those outside of our species. This Valentine’s Day, take a moment to appreciate how members of the plant and animal kingdoms “get it on” with sometimes sweet, often risqué, and occasionally deadly examples of how life has approached the question of reproduction.
Join us at the Nature House to visit Stanley Park’s lovebirds. Feel free to arrive single and ready to mingle, or bring a mate to spice up your date night!
We gratefully acknowledge that the land on which we gather and work is the unceded and unsurrendered territories of the Coast Salish peoples, including the xʷməθkwəy̓əm (Musqueam), Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish) Nation, and Səl̓ílwətaʔ/Selilwitulh (Tsleil-Waututh) Nation. For thousands of years, Coast Salish people have walked this land and walked with it in a good way, harvesting foods and medicines and made good ceremony here. The abundance that these lands and waters provide us to live, work and play is due to the reciprocal relationships by which Coast Salish people lived and live today.
