The Voices of Victoria speaker series continues with a presentation on the Bowker Creek Biodiversity Corridor Vision with Soren Henrich, from the Friends of Bowker Creek Society. Learn how the urban watershed got to the condition it is in now and discuss how we might go forward from here.
Imagine a healthy Bowker Creek urban watershed, where a diversity of birds, animals, pollinator insects, native plants live in balance and harmony within the city – a Biodiversity Greenway that connects the many communities and people that live in the Bowker Creek watershed, a multi-use pedestrian bicycle path accessible from many points that connects Oak Bay to the existing regional trail system.
Guest speaker, Soren Henrich is passionate about urban watershed renewal since he realized the value of rain in the city. He is the chairman of the Friends of Bowker Creek Society and has served as a community representative on the CRD Bowker Creek Initiative Steering Committee since 2006. He will talk about how the urban watershed got to the condition it is in now and discuss how we might go forward from here.
There will be a 20-minute presentation with Q&A afterwards.
Brought to you by the Victoria-Beacon Hill and Oak Bay-Gordon Head Riding Associations.

Protecting your health
BC Greens recognize that airborne illnesses and pollutants pose a significant health risk to everyone, especially the young, elderly, and immunocompromised, while caregivers, healthcare professionals, and support staff come into regular contact with vulnerable persons. When choosing venues, BC Greens prioritize outdoor spaces, and indoor spaces with good ventilation. In closed indoor spaces, we encourage attendees to wear well-fitting masks (N95, KN95, or KF94), especially during the respiratory-illness season.
Creating safe spaces
The BC Green Party is committed to providing an environment free of discrimination and harassment, where all individuals are treated with respect and dignity, can contribute fully and have equal speaking opportunities. To support this commitment, all event attendees will be expected to follow the standards of our Safe Spaces Participant's Guide.
