The aliens have landed in Nelson.

To kick off the exhibit Aliens Among Us: BC’s Recent Plant and Animal Arrivals, Touchstones Nelson will be celebrating with an afternoon of creativity and learning activities for all ages.

This free event will run from 12 p.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday and will include alien crafts as well as activities led by Ken Marr of the Royal BC Museum, and Jen Vogel of the Central Kootenay Invasive Plant Committee.

Aliens Among Us is a touring exhibit from the Royal BC Museum, and features intriguing displays about the invasive plant and animal species in BC that are threatening our indigenous ecosystems.

The exhibit will run from December 1 to February 24. For information call 250-352-9813.
