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.
For an idea of what to expect at the park check out our own CVNS website at this link: http://comoxvalleynaturalist.bc.ca/nature-viewing-guide/3-strait-of-georgiaoyster-bay-area/seal-bay/
