The next hike will be on Saturday, 9th April.
The meeting place is the Ballpark in Gillies Bay at 10:00am
i will still be roaming the beaches on Vancouver Island in search of Black Brant Geese on Saturday and for this hike only I have no substitute guide. I suggest the choice of hike and the guiding could be a group effort this time with lots of easy and familiar hike routes to choose from.
Today I'm giving advanced notice that the annual Trekkers Spring Raven Bay BBQ and Oyster Bake is coming up on Saturday, 16th April. The meeting place will be Van Anda. More information will be available next week.
A couple of weeks ago I guided a group of the members of the Powell River Malaspina Naturalists Club to visit some areas of Texada with interesting features of limestone geology. My photo this week shows Stromberg Falls as it looked the day of their visit with very little water in Stromberg Creek. I don't think any of the members had visited the falls before and they were clearly quite impressed with the beauty of this part of the island.
