February 25th panel discussion...

Thanks to everybody who attended the event today at VanDusen, and to Jason and others for tweeting it and blogging about it.

Monday evening (February 25th), Heritage Vancouver is hosting a panel discussion on the future of the Education Centre aka "A Walk in the Forest" at the Arts Alliance downtown: see the HVS site for time and registration, which is required, although the event is free.

Panelists include Michael Kluckner, who will give a historical overview; architect Henry Hawthorn, who will speak about the building's architectural pedigree and the botanical garden association's recent dealings with the Park Board; and VanDusen's first director, Roy Forster. There will also be a speaker from the Coastal Forest Alliance (not sure if that's the group's formal name). The evening begins with a Powerpoint presentation that will be posted here afterwards.

Please submit any artwork/photographs that have been inspired by your visit to the site!
