I can’t stop thinking about fruit flies.
A friend pointed out that I’ve been staring at mosquitoes strangely.
And don’t get me started on what is literally the birds and the bees.
The Meewasin Valley Authority’s very own conservationist, Jamie, has been working with the flora and fauna at Beaver Creek’s Conservation Area for over 20 years. Her passion and connection to the site has fostered an incredible understanding for all sorts of species living in the Meewasin Valley.
What’s perhaps most fascinating about Jamie is that she can use that knowledge to gunsling unbelievably true facts about their…well, courtship in the valley, let’s call it.
Again, I can’t stress this enough,
I never thought I’d ever adoringly say “Awwww” out loud about a mosquito before.
A chance to re-connect
When we first started the Naughty by Nature program for adults a couple of weeks ago, I thought – “I can’t remember the last time I ate so well and laughed so hard! Certainly, these days, that’s been huge.”
As wickedly funny as Jamie can be with her albeit completely factual information, it was the re-connection to community, and the re-connection to nature that I found most exciting.
To laugh and learn together in the sunset’s glow, while delighting in charcuterie, so beautifully and generously hand crafted by local legend Style and Graze, was the treat of the year.
What do I get with my ticket?
Your ticket price allows us to visit the much protected and breathtaking Beaver Creek, after hours, in private, with one of Meewasin’s top conservationists. It also allows you to explore, enjoy and support the many AWESOME local businesses that helped put this event together:
All well-deserving of the top accolades they’ve received, 9 Mile Legacy provided their refreshing new No. 1 Durum Wheat Ale, Black Fox Distillery, with their Gin #3, Style and Graze with their generously handpicked local charcuterie…even the amazing staff at Primal Pasta had a hand in creating our specially crafted cocktails!!
Most of all, our ticket helps support the Meewasin Valley Authority, so that we can keep conserving, developing, and educating our huge community about the equally as huge river valley that we care for. That means, we can create more fun, and immersive activities like this one for you, your friends, your family, and your community.
Tickets for 2022 are on sale now, and you can join us through the summer on selected dates, but hurry, because tickets are selling fast.
