Value Nature Podcast

Tales of biodiversity from the West Coast of Canada!

The Value Nature podcast explores the connections between nature and culture. This Bateman Foundation production is recorded on Vancouver Island.

The very first episode honours the arbutus tree: an enduring symbol of life on the West Coast. Since time immemorial, the arbutus has captivated artists, naturalists and storytellers from all walks of life. We visited Point Ellice House in Victoria to explore their cultural legacy and uncover some important BC history.
