    Stories at Fern: 30th Anniversary year

    Every month for the last 30 years we have gathered to share stories, legends, urban myths, folktales and more... We formed a guild back then to learn and practice the art and craft of oral telling, and voila! Of course it helps a great deal if there are people to tell our stories to: Those keen listeners are you, the public. Come on your own or bring a friend along. Refreshments served.

As adventurer and guide he learned about the province’s flora and fauna and became acquainted with major American natural historians. With such knowledge and skills, he laid a firm foundation for today’s Royal British Columbia Museum. Patricia Roy, a past-president of the Victoria Historical Society, recently completed a history of the Royal British Columbia Museum and Archives.
