The Peace River Valley: A Treasure Trove of Natural History
The Peace River Valley in northeast B.C. is a living laboratory for scientists to study outlier species like prickly pear cacti. But now this rare low-elevation valley and migratory bird corridor is under threat, and scientists are rushing to document its biodiversity and search for new and unexpected species before they are forever lost to science. In this presentation, award-winning journalist Sarah Cox tells the story of the Peace River Valley’s astonishing natural wealth and shares insights from her new book Breaching the Peace: The Site C Dam and a Valley’s Stand Against Big Hydro. 

We meet at 7:30 p.m. in Room 159 of the Fraser Building at the University of Victoria. Everyone is welcome. Please feel free to bring a friend. Note: UVic parking is $3.
