This year's BOTANY BC takes place from Thursday, April 29 to Sunday, May 2 in the southern Gulf Islands. This year for the first time we are hosting a joint session with our southern neighbor, BOTANY WASHINGTON (BotWA). Gulf Islands and the adjacent San Juan Islands are part of the same archipelago, and are botanically and historically related in fascinating ways. Our dates are early this year to catch some of the islands' early blooming coastal species. We have booked the entire Cedar Beach Resort on St. Mary Lake on Salt Spring Island. This beautiful lakefront resort comes complete with beach house, fireplaces, sauna and boats! Children are welcome!
Join us as we explore the Gulf Islands' rich spring flora with a group of expert botanists by day (including a boat trip through the Gulf Islands to Saturna Island), followed by BOTANY BC's always entertaining and interesting talks, workshops, music and general debauchery by night.
The registration fee for this year's Botany BC is $45, and covers the cost of guest speakers, local cheeses for Thursday's Social, and a boat trip to Saturna Island on Saturday.
Cedar Beach offers the following accommodation options:
Don't forget to bring clothing to keep you warm and dry, a swimsuit (for beautiful St. Mary Lake), musical instruments for evening singalongs, between-meal beverages, etc.
Meals will be provided at Cedar Beach Resort by INTERLUDE (Interesting Edibles Rendered Lovingly Under Demented Environments), a Salt Spring Island catering company with a reputation for preparing beautiful meals using good quality, local and where possible organic ingredients. "Everything is served with a sense of humour", they promise.
Breakfasts are buffet-style: granola, yogurt, fresh-baked breakfasty things, great condiments (local honey, blackberry jam, etc.), breakfast souffle (an egg concoction), coffee, tea, juice.
Lunches are bagged: sandwiches and/or wraps (tortillas), fruit, baked goodies, some kind of drink.
Dinners are: (Friday), something along the lines of lasagna, fresh bread, mixed locally-grown organic green salad, coffee, teas, great dessert; (Saturday), cashew carrot loaf, chicken phyllo, green bean caesar salad, coffee, teas, wonderful dessert.
