Alumni Weekend 2013 at the Beaty

UBC Alumni Weekend

Saturday, May 25, 2013

Alumni Weekend 2013 is a chance for the public and UBC Alumni to explore the campus.

At the Beaty Biodiversity Museum, we will open our doors with free general admission for registered Alumni Weekend participants and celebrate biodiversity with family programming, museum tours, puppet shows, and more.

At 2:30 p.m. in the Allan Yap Theatre, Dr. Andrew Trites, Director of the UBC Marine Mammal Research Unit, will talk about marine mammals in BC, uncovering their fascinating lives – one bone at a time. Also learn about other skeleton articulation projects and enjoy photos and stories of Dr. Trites’ adventures. The talk is geared toward the general public and appropriate for all ages. Before his talk, catch a screening of the documentary, Raising Big Blue, at 1:15 p.m.

Note: The Museum, parking, and UBC campus will be busy on May 25. Please plan extra time for your visit.
