Upcoming Walk: Saturday, March 4th. 2017, Union Bay Coal Hills

Saturday 4th March, 9:30 am;  Union Bay Coal Hills

The annual herring spawn in Baynes Sound has not materialized yet, and so we will not be going on a “sea-cruise” this day. Instead, Loys will be leading us on a walk around the Union Bay’s Coal Hills.  The Union Bay Coal Hills site is a very special post-industrial ecosystem in the Comox Valley, with a rich local history. It is a south-facing heat absorbing area which can present many interesting biological  features.  It is an excellent location to appreciate the return of early spring, and the many restoration and enhancement efforts that have mitigated the sites coal mining impacts. Dress for the weather, and meet at Old Church on Harmston Rd, Courtenay at 9:30 am to car pool.
