Last week our Bachelor of Science in Environmental Management (ENSC430) students enjoyed a field trip to Witty’s Lagoon. We visited the outcrop at Tower Point that is part of the Metchosin Igneous Complex. This is the youngest piece of Vancouver Island’s crust that accreted around 42 Million years ago and is called the Crescent Terrane.
Several of us (Hilary Leighton, Leslie King, Rob Newell and Ann Dale) recently participated in a Climate Consciousness Conference in Findhorn, Scotland. Prior to that, we were in Paris for a few days, and were there when Notre Dame caught fire. There was a tremendous silence in the city that night and for several days. Donations started to flow and there was some criticism of so much money being donate for a building. But it is not just a building, it is a French icon and for many around the world.
Our 2018-2020 BSc in Environmental Management cohort arrived on campus on April 29th for 3 weeks. This group of students will be our only group that will get to truly experience the difference between the previous labs in the Grant building and the brand-new labs in the Sherman Building. So far, the students are loving the new labs!!
Most mornings as I wake up, I’m listening to CBC Victoria. Sometime around 645 am or so, every weekday morning, as sure as the sun is going to come up, there is the ‘business report’, a few minutes of things being up, things being down, and some thing not moving at all.
