The Beasts of the North Shore
Join us for this National Wildlife Week event!
The North Shore is home or has been home to many of the larger native mammals. Some of these such as deer, black bear, coyote skunk and raccoon are well known to North Shore residents but others are seldom seen and little known. Those who have stayed under the onslaught of human proliferation have found a variety of ways to co-exist. Others have left the area as human impact has reached intolerable levels and others such as the coyote that were absent before have found human densification to their liking and have come to stay. The speaker will describe these species outlining interesting facts about their biology, how to identify their tracks and scats and how each has adapted (or not) to the modifications of their habitat by humans.

Free. Registration required. Call 604-929-3727 to register.

Capilano Universe: A Ribbon of Steel or a String of Pearls? Women Building Community Along B.C.'s Kettle Valley Railway
Join Capilano University's Jeanine Mikita for another Capilano Universe lecture.

One hundred years ago, the Kettle Valley Railway was pushed through the rugged land of BC’s interior to secure an all-Canadian route through southern BC. Spaced along this sinuous line were ‘section houses’, simple dwellings separated by miles from each other, which housed the workers (and often their families) who were responsible for rail maintenance. This presentation will explore how the inhabitants of these isolated whistle-stops were part of an elongated CPR ‘company town’, and how women were instrumental in building community in this challenging setting.

About Jeanine Mikita
Jeanne has taught a wide variety of courses in her 21 years at Capilano University - in the departments of Geography, Women & Gender Studies, and in the Global Stewardship Program. As a geographer, she has always been interested in the interplay between humans and landscape, and the forces that push people from one part of the world to another. Her earlier research focused on the migration of Filipina nannies to Vancouver, but more recently, she has turned her attention to the movements and place-making activities of the people who worked on BC’s historic Kettle Valley Railway.
