In Nature’s Realm: Early Naturalists Explore Vancouver Island The Victoria Historical Society presents a talk, In Nature’s Realm: Early Naturalists Explore Vancouver Island by Michael Layland, on Thursday, November 28, 2019 at James Bay New Horizons Centre, 234 Menzies Street, Victoria V8V 2G7. Doors open at 7:15 p.m. for refreshments and conversation. A short business meeting beginning at 7:45 will be followed immediately by the speaker. Michael Layland will introduce his third book delving into the progression of European knowledge of Vancouver Island. The book celebrates how the diverse local flora and fauna captured the interest of naturalists among the explorers, settlers, and visitors. A life-long amateur naturalist, Michael has combined this interest with his history of exploration and cartography of our island. Michael, a former president of the society, has presented several talks to the VHS. Copies of his books will be available for sale and signing.
