The Pender Harbour Wildlife Society (PHWS) is showing the movie Rainforest: Limit of Splendour on Jan. 21 at 7 p.m. at Pender Harbour Secondary School on Hwy. 101.
Inspired by his relationship with a Kwaxkwaka’wakw elder, filmmaker Richard Boyce embarks upon a cinematic journey to a remote corner of Vancouver Island. Massive trees thrive along the banks of an ancient river floodplain providing for diverse life forms in the temperate rainforest. This film is an evocative journey, contrasting forestry as practised for ten thousand years by First Nations people with modern logging.
Popcorn and home-baked goods will be available, as well as raffle prizes. All are welcome to enjoy the movie, followed by the regular business meeting.
PHWS is looking for new members to join the board of directors. If you love all things wildlife, please consider coming to our meetings to learn how you can help. For more details, email firstname.lastname@example.org
