Wild Cortes

WILD CORTES at the Linnaea Farm Education Centre, 1255 Seaford Road, is open  Friday & Saturday, from noon to 4 p.m. Thanks to generous funding from BC Museums Association, Heritage BC and BC Canada 150, you can now take a stroll on the wild side of Cortes Island to see mounted specimens (by taxidermist Laurel Bohart) from a dragonfly to a giant hornet nest to Raven’s Relations to eagles to a baby beaver and seals. Compare skulls, marvel at a Curiosity Cabinet, try on costumes of endangered species, peruse our in-house library, put a puzzle of Cortes watersheds together, get eye-to-eye with eagles and a heron and find out what’s raiding an oystercatcher’s nest!

This exhibit (opening date in April 2018), was created with the help of Cortes Island partners: Friends of Cortes Island (FOCI), Children’s Forest,  Discovery Island Ecosystems Mapping (DIEM), and Cortes Island biologists, Sabina Leader Mense and Christian Gronau.

Entrance is down the steps near Linnaea’s front door with a handicap entrance down the Library ramp. Admission is by donation.
