Masset Lectures Feb. 15th at NWCC

“Compassionate Listening” with Conch Konschuh
“Invertebrates of Haida Gwaii: Tarantulas, scorpions, jumping slugs, and zombie worms” with Stu Crawford

Facilitator Christy “Conch” Konschuh will present on Compassionate Listening. Compassionate Listening is a peace making tool useful to those who have survived war, genocide and displacement. The act of Compassionate Listening engages the heart and as with any exercise, creates a positive practice that contributes to understanding and connection.

Biologist Stu Crawford will talk about the terrestrial invertebrates of Haida Gwaii.  We will take a closer look at amazing world of the wiggling and crawling creatures that are all around us.  The talk will be followed by a hands-on session.  There will be microscopes for everyone to use, and lots of specimens to look at.
