Going squirrelly
Squirrels are everywhere and are quite often thought of as a nuisance, but perhaps you could find some room in your heart to care about some squirrels for at least one day? Visit the Francis/King Regional Park to take a walk in the park and learn all about the busy squirrel. The stroll goes from 1 to 2:30 pm and is free to attend. More information can be found at

The Comic Strippers are back to take it off!
UVic’s Farquhar Auditorium are bringing back the Comic Strippers for a night of what looks to be hilarious improv. Last year the fictitious male-stripper troupe used audience suggestions and turned them into comedic scenes interspersed with funny dance routines. The event is at 7:30 pm; students pay $25. Go to for info on what is sure to be a night of laughs.

Woodpeckers are neat, really
Take a walk in the woods and, while you’re there, why not learn about woodpeckers? Francis/King Nature Centre, just off Munn Road, is the place to go if you’re interested. There you can discover all kinds of things about woodpeckers and identify them through sight, sound, and habitats. Two times are offered for this free event: an adult walk from 11 am to 12:30 pm and an all-ages walk from 1:30 to 2:30 pm. Visit for more information.

Sunday, November 15
Mushrooms are marvellous, really
A free guided walk for the novice mushroom enthusiast will be held from 10:30 am to 1 pm on November 15 in the Francis/King Regional Park. The event is restricted to 5 years and up so little ones should be left in the car. (Joke! That would not be good.) There is limited space; if you are interested please pre-register by November 13 by calling 250–478–3344, which is also the number you can call for more information.
