It's been a while since I updated this blog. We enjoyed a great field experience in August 2018 just after my return to Canada after a year on research leave in the Netherlands.
The course will take place this year from June 23-July 1, 2019. I am locking in this late-June timing for the next several years to provide some predictability for students and the Galiano Conservancy Association. I love the late summer for the long stretches of amazing weather, but most of the plants are dormant, the birds have fledged and some have already left, and if the last few years are anything to judge by the spectre of wildfire smoke is a risk. So, late June it is.
