Nature Field Trips will be led by Kihan Yoon-Henderson, returning Natural History Summer Coordinator & Host.
I am grateful for the opportunity to return as the Natural History Centre’s summer host/coordinator this season. As I have been coming to the Island since I was born, Hornby and its ecologically minded community have been central to my love of nature, being active outdoors and to my drive towards studying environmental and related social justice issues. On this note, I am a University of British Columbia student with a major in Human Geography. In addition to my time spent on Hornby, I grew up in a diverse and creative neighbourhood in East Vancouver, which has been formative to my love of community. It excites me to have the chance to explore Hornby’s incredible and rich natural history with all of you again. I look forward to seeing you at the Centre!
