Join the residents of Tapestry at Arbutus Walk for a day of education, inspiration, and exploration as we discover the fascinating relationship between ore and orcas at Britannia Mining Museum, where history meets marine ecology. Learn about the intricate connections within the marine food chain and understand the far-reaching consequences of copper contamination on marine life. Enjoy an engaging and informative ride on the mine train, exploring the historical context of mining in the region and its impact on the environment. This unique exhibit features the bones from a deceased killer whale found off the coast of Tofino in 1997 preserved by the Strawberry Isle Marine Research Society. Explore the efforts dedicated to marine conservation and witness the inspiring journey of how a killer whale’s legacy is used to educate and inspire people to protect our oceans.
