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 new exhibit opened in April 2018.

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