The Pender Harbour Wildlife Society is showing the movie “Rainforest – The Limit of Splendour”, on Jan. 21 at 7pm at the PH Secondary School on HWY 101. 

Inspired by his relationship with a Kwaxkwaka’wakw elder, the filmmaker, Richard Boyce, embarks upon a cinematic journey to a remote corner of Vancouver Island. Massive trees thrive along the banks of an ancient river floodplain providing for diverse life forms in the temperate rainforest. This film is an evocative journey, contrasting forestry as practiced for ten thousand years by First Nations people with modern logging.

We will have popcorn and our usual home baked goods, as well as raffle prizes. All are welcome to join us for the movie and for our regular business meeting that follows. The PHWS is looking for new members to join the board of directors so, if you love all things wildlife, please consider coming to our meetings to learn how you can help.
