Exhibit The Mystery of Grafton Tyler Brown: Race, Art, and Landscape in 19th Century British Columbia 2017-04-26 10:00
Description

We know Grafton Tyler Brown (1841-1918) was one of the first professional landscape artists to work in the Pacific Northwest. His few regional paintings that survive offer vivid windows into the world of 1880s Victoria and British Columbia. Yet, how did this African American artist succeed at a time when racial prejudice prevented most Blacks from entering any skilled profession? Guest curated by Dr. John Lutz (History, UVic) with Emerald Johnstone Bedell and Caroline Riedel. Created in partnership with UVIC Legacy Art Galleries and UVIC History Department. With conservation support from the Royal BC Museum.

Lecture/Seminar Watching Birds Naked 2017-04-26 19:30:00
Description

BIRDERS’ NIGHT Victoria Natural History Society

Presentation will follow announcements and a brief break.

Are birds really “bird-brains”? Do they taste “good”? Can eagles really see farther than humans? Why are most owls as blind as we are on a dark night? How does a kestrel use ultraviolet light to catch mice? Which birds smell the best? These are just some of the questions that Dr. David Bird will answer in his humourous but educational slide show on the sensory ecology of birds. Remove those beautiful coats of feathers and you’ll discover that birds have some of the most incredible physical and physiological adaptations to keep them in tune with their environment and with each other. Once you’ve heard Dr. Bird’s talk, you’ll never look at birds in the same way again.

Film CALL OF THE FOREST 2017-04-26 19:00:00
Description

CALL OF THE FOREST: The Forgotten Wisdom of Trees

Director: Jeffrey McKay; Canada, 2016, 82 min.

“A PASSIONATE ECO-DOCUMENTARY….WILL MAKE YOU SEE TREES WITH NEW EYES.” –Winnipeg Free Press

You can almost smell the forest in this beautiful new advocacy documentary featuring the Irish/Canadian author, conservationist, and botanist Diana Beresford-Kroeger.  –Pacific Cinematheque

The film follows Diana Beresford-Kroeger as she investigates our profound biological and spiritual connection to the woodlands and explores the most beautiful forests in the Northern Hemisphere.

From the sacred sugi and cedar forests of Japan to the great boreal forest of Canada, Beresford-Kroeger relates the amazing history and legacy of these ancient forests while also explaining the science of trees and the irreplaceable roles they play in protecting and feeding the planet.

This beautifully photographed film also profiles the Engelmann Spruce and the Great Western Red Cedar from the remaining ancient coastal rainforest of Vancouver Island.

We meet some of the world’s foremost experts in reforestation and are introduced to the activism of the Anishinaabe people of Pimachiowin Aki in Manitoba and Ontario. While calling for massive, global action, the film at heart is a story of triumph, proposing that each of us can combat climate change by planting trees in our own yards and neighbourhoods.
