Nanaimo, BC on Canada's west coast is a new port of call for several cruise lines.
I am a career naturalist as well as a professional heritage interpreter and native plant gardener who is putting together a short, easy guided nature walk in the downtown area for cruise passengers on behalf of my own tour and training company.
I thought I would ask you if this is something that would be of interest to you?
I would appreciate any feedback you may have.
Topic: Heritage Plant Walks
Content: basic local geology, growing conditions, dominant ecosystem of region.
We will cover a few typical native plants and trees found in planters, alongside buildings etc and one interesting exotic that has a unique history in our area. I also encourage questions as we go.
Length: 50 min.
Cost: $6 US per person, maximum 12 people per group
Difficulty: Easy with stairs
Distance: 0. 5 mile
I am thinking of scheduling them on the hour and leaving from a prominent landmark, not far from the dock.
