Dwellings Talk Series: Wildlife in the City
2:30 pm - 3:30 pm
808 Richards Street
Where we live—and how we inhabit that space—shapes our experiences, our culture, and even who we are.Each month, the Dwellings Talk Series invites you to join a conversation about the idea of “dwellings” from three distinct perspectives: urban ecology, youth homelessness, and urban design.
On November 8, meet Metro Vancouver Regional Park Interpreter, Zoey Slater, as we explore Wildlife in the City.
Regional Parks preserve habitat close to urban areas for both wildlife conservation and the health and happiness of our urban population. Investigate urban wildlife with a Metro Vancouver Regional Park Interpreter. Open your eyes to the seen and unseen wildlife co-existing with us. What elements do they require? How have they adapted, expanded with us, or been excluded? Why is exposure to wildlife and the proximity of functional ecosystems so important to an urban population?
Engage in this knowledge exchange with the rest of our community and join the conversation after the talk.
