The Courtenay and District Museum is hosting Aliens Among Us, a travelling exhibition designed and produced by the Royal BC Museum about British Columbia’s invasive species.
There are more than 4,000 alien species in the province and that number grows each year. Some of these aliens are invasive—they spread quickly, threaten native wildlife and are hard to control.
The exhibit includes over 30 dioramas featuring specimens from the Royal BC Museum’s collection of mammals, birds, amphibians, fish, insects, plants and more.
Aliens Among Us will be on exhibit until Saturday, March 7.
The Courtenay and District Museum is located at 207 Fourth Street in downtown Courtenay. Admission by donation. FMI: 250-334-0686 ext. 2.
