Natural History Museum: Fresh Water on Hornby Island

July 20, 2023 @ 1:30 pm - 2:30 pm

$10 – $20

With Darren Bond, enthusiast, and John Cox, geologist
Thursday, July 20th, 1:30 – 2:30 pm.

Concerned about fresh water, and all that that means for Hornby Island?
Join us for a one-hour presentation and Q&A by two members of Hornby Water Stewardship, including:

  • Groundwater/hydrogeology: Do you know where the water is?
  • Drought: Yikes, is there enough? What is it doing to the ecosystem?
  • Contamination: Are nasty coliform bacteria getting into our drinking water?
  • Education and awareness: What are we doing about it? What’s next?

Dr. John Cox is a Professor Emeritus of Geology at Mount Royal University in Calgary, and part-time resident of Hornby. He gets rocks, which helps immensely with hydrogeology, and provides Water Stewardship with expertise in the scientific method for our studies.
Darren Bond is a full-time resident, and has been a keen learner of all things water over the past half-dozen years, and brings business planning / administrative skills from years at TELUS to bear on moving Water Stewardship projects forward.

Cost: Sliding scale: $10 – $20 for adults. Children attend free. Refreshments provided.
