From open mic on a Monday to singing like Kelly Clarkson, it’s gonna be a great day “since you u been gone!”
Here are 5 things to do in and around Victoria today.
What: It’s that time again! Witness over 1000 Blue Morpho butterflies flooding our indoor tropical jungle all month long. n extra 700 pupae and new butterflies will emerge each day! This amazing transformation can be seen in our emerging window as the butterflies hatch from their chrysalides.
Where: Victoria Butterfly Gardens – 1461 Benvenuto Avenue
When: 10:00 am – 4:00 pm
What: The vegetation of southern Vancouver Island has been shaped by a variety of forces over the last ten thousand years. Ice ages and warm spells have left behind a curious juxtaposition of species that seem to belong in the frozen north beside species that may be more at home in the southern deserts. Landscape-scale management by Coast Salish civilizations over millennia has likewise left tell-tale signs in the plant community. In the last two hundred years, vegetation has been altered at an unprecedented rate.
Where: Shaw Centre for the Salish Sea – 9811 Seaport Place
When: 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm
