Kids are welcome at the Black Creek Community Centre (BCCA) on Pro-D Day on Feb. 7 for an introductory program about prehistoric life in the Comox Valley.

The experience will begin with an interactive discussion and presentation. In addition to learning about the formation of Vancouver Island, students will discover that the area, rich in 80-million-year-old marine fossils, was once submerged beneath a tropical sea.

Students will also have the opportunity to study fossil specimens up-close.

This program is suitable for ages six to 12 and will be held Monday from 10 a.m. to noon at the Black Creek Community Centre. The instructor is Pat Trask, assistant curator of science at the Courtenay and District Museum.

Participant fees are $10 for BCCA members, $12 for non-members.

For more information, call the BCCA office at 250-337-5190. Office hours are 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Monday to Saturday, and 4 to 8 p.m. Monday through Thursday. The BCCA’s website address is www.bccaonline.ca.
