Dec 10, Sunday: Seal Bay Park at Fizell Road
Todays’ walk in Seal Bay Park starts at the little used Fizell Road entrance on the west side of the Seal bay Park. Access is via Grieve Road and Langlois Road. The walk is mostly flat, under the tall trees and along well maintained trails.

A short report highlighting the work done in the Courtenay River Airpark this year(2017) is now available under Publications.
Dec 2, Saturday: Kye Bay Duck Viewing
Loys will lead a walk along the beach at Kye Bay, below the Comox Airport. The high bluffs and cobble beach make for an interesting walk any time of the year, but we expect to see many ducks floating just off shore at this. Wear sturdy boots with good traction for the slippery rocks, and dress for the weather and wind. Bring water as there are not facilities on the beach
Meet at the Kye Bay parking lot (Elks Park) at the corner of Kye Bay and Windslow Roads.

Nov 26, Sunday: Seal Bay Park, Bates road entrance
Loys will be leading the Seal Bay Park walk. We will be meeting at the main parking lot on Bates Road. The featured items on the walk will be trees and lichens. CVN was instrumental in getting this area some level of protection, although it took something like 30 years to achieve. Unfortunately, the park is still not securely removed from the possibility of further development, although that is unlikely to happen anytime soon. The Park is currently undergoing a review of its Master Plan by CVRD.
