UBC Alumni weekend

UBC held their May 2014 alumni weekend, and we totally took advantage of that to go the Beaty museum of biodiversity and the TRIUMF nuclear science facility.

Watery plants

Last time I was at UBC there was no water/plant installation at the bookstore. There was a parking lot.

Harry?

I'm certain that even back then, "hairy" was not written "harry".

Muk muk is learning about nature

The Beaty museum of biodiversity is a research museum that's effectively open to the public. There is no "research collection" vs. "display collection", it's all just there.

Muk muk and the bumblebee

Bumblebees are so funny. You just want to reach over and *poit* them on the butt.

Muk muk likes flowers

You shouldn't just stop to smell the roses, other flowers are good too.

A white-crowned sparrow

This was chirping overhead while we were walking around The Farm, and it kind of looked like a sparrow, but also not. Turns out, it was a white-crowned sparrow!

TRIUMF (the tri-university meson facility at UBC) has a pretty impressive control room!

TRIUMF

Generally TRIUMF is about science, but this bit is also about a nice logo.
