Watt will be the evening’s special guest.

Thursday, Dec. 1, 7 p.m.

The Metchosin Foundation is looking for ideas on the feasibility or means to make a storable (foldable) table top model of the Metchosin landscape, for use in environmental education. If you have any ideas on how this might be done, or are interested in helping, please contact Kem Luther at kemluther@gmail.com.
